"High Tech Hawaiʻi," a live monthly call-in show produced by the University of Hawaiʻi to shed light on high technology activities within the state, will air on Tuesday, September 25, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. The topic will be "Network Security, Communities and Consequences."

Host David Lassner, Director of Information Technology for the University of Hawaiʻi, will be joined by guests Chris Duque, Detective and Cybercrime Specialist for the Honolulu Police Department; Jodi Ito, Information Security Officer for the University of Hawaiʻi; Clifton Royston, Senior Systems Architect for Lavanet; and Christopher Young, Deputy Attorney General for the State of Hawaiʻi.

Lassner and his guests from the worlds of law enforcement and network service provisions will discuss NIMDA, one of the most potentially virulent network attacks ever, which was unleashed on the Internet on September 18. They will also discuss network security, recommended practices for safe computing, what the law says, and how to cope in an ever-more complex world of shared networks.

The show is webcast live and can be seen on PEG Access cable channels throughout the state as well as on Verizon Americast. On Oʻahu cable it is aired live on Oceanic Channel 55, on Hawaiʻi Cable Channel 54 and on Americast Channel 21.
