This summer we are running a Summer Cyber Academy which will offer five courses in conjunction with the Center for Private Security and Safety and the Division of Professional Studies. A primary target audience is working legal professionals who can take these courses as continuing education courses. Visiting students are also welcome to enroll to take the courses for credit.
CRJ Students.CRJ students can use these courses as electives or toward the Policing specialization.
D4CS Students. Two of courses being offered, CRJ/FCM 727 and CRJ 753, might be of interest to D4CS students. The others are intended as service courses for legal and security professionals who need to learn about cyber forensics and cybersecurity. FCM 803, Cyber Forensics Software and Tools, is a new non-technical course that will not count toward D4CS degree requirements.
Please spread the word about the Summer Cyber Academy to lawyers and others you think might benefit from learning about Cybercrime.
Graduate students can apply for travel funds to attend conferences. A few D4CS students have already been granted funds from this Student Government program. The deadline to apply for Spring 2015 is November 17 at 5PM. Check it out here: Student travel support
