EUGENE, Ore. -- FBI agents and security professionals brought their expertise on cybersecurity to the University of Oregon campus on Monday.

The university hosted their first ever Oregon Cyber Resilience Summit at the Erb Memorial Union.

It addressed topics like social media and the dark web and steps individuals can take to protect themselves from cyberattacks, as well as how people can protect research and other data.

"Some other things that they're going to be learning specifically at this conference is anything from what the state is doing to protect the elections coming up here in November as well as what is being done to protect the power grid,” said Leo Howell, the Chief Information Security Officer with the university. “Also, what is being done to protect students at University of Oregon for example and their data and their sensitive information."

Howell said they want to make this an annual event in October, which is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
