Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Honors Program invites the public to a free presentation on cyberterrorism by former FBI Special Agent Jim Hight 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6, in the Davis Learning Center auditorium.

Hight, a former supervisor of one of the FBI's elite Joint Terrorism task forces, oversaw intelligence gathering in terrorist threats, criminal cases and hostile intelligence services and was a designated case agent for the Oklahoma City bombing, remaining on the case through Timothy McVeigh's conviction.

"Hight spoke at the university last year and his presentation was really well-received," said Patric McElwain, sponsor of the Honors Program. "After his presentation, there will be a question and answer session."

The presentation explains how terrorist groups gain access to infrastructure through the Internet, as well as how to detect and develop safeguards to neutralize these threats.
