Purdue cyberforensics students to attend RSA conference

Students from Purdue University were handpicked to experience the international RSA Conference, an academic and networking event focused on cybersecurity.

The graduate program in cyberforensics at Purdue was one of 10 programs selected to send students to the conference’s RSAC Security Scholar Program. They include: Ph.D. students Tatiana Ringenberg and Kelley Misata and master’s students Lourdes Gino Dominic Savio and Jacob Matthew Kambic.

In its first year, the RSAC Security Scholar Program was created to “connect the brightest up-and-coming cybersecurity students to leading experts, peers and conference attendees. Its goal is to share knowledge, experience and connections to enrich the discourse on how to stay ahead of cyber threats.”

Misata is already slated to share her knowledge as a speaker during the event. She will present “Get Out of Your Comfort Zone: Redefining Privacy and Security”.

“We are incredibly proud of our students and honored that our cyberforensics program has been recognized by RSA as one of the best. This student-centered program encourages networking and information sharing with other cybersecurity students, experts and academics," said Kathryn Seigfried-Spellar, assistant professor of computer and information technology.

The RSA Conference if February 29-March 4, 2016, in San Francisco.
