Normal SciFi glosses over a glaring problem with comms through the vastness of space… The Internet and TCP/IP suffer a massive self-imposed DOS attack with any disruptions for more than a few seconds.

Join them for details, security considerations and how to get involved in this FREE EH-Net Live! webinar on Thurs June 27, 2019 at 1:00 PM US Eastern. Join us live to receive certificates for easy submission of CPEs!
