I am pleased to announce that our Cyber Security Summer Camp 2018 at Hunter College is now taking applications! The two-week instructional camp will be taught by myself and Prof. Debroy. The camp is free to attend and includes a stipend among other benefits.
Hunter College Cyber Security Summer Camp 2018 is a FREE, two-week, full-day summer program providing an introduction to cyber security.
The program is open to all Hunter non-CS women students who will be sophomores in Fall 2018. No background or experience in cyber security or computer programming is needed in order to apply, only your interest and enthusiasm.
I am pleased to announce that I have received a grant from Women in Technology and Entrepreneurship in New York (WiTNY) as co-principal investigator, along with Dr. Saptarshi Debroy, for the project entitled “Project Khaleesi–Mentoring Tomorrow’s Cybersecurity Queen of Dragons.” The grant amount, backed by the Verizon Foundation, is $125,000 US. The project will aim to promote cybersecurity and secure software engineering education and research to women students entering CUNY as freshmen with an interest in STEM. WiTNY is an initiative to facilitate, encourage, and enable increased participation of women in technology fields, both as entrepreneurs and academics, in New York.
