Swipe card access to the D4CS labs (6.61 and 6.67) have been updated. New and continuing students should have access to the labs. If your card has issues let Professor Lovely know by email as Public Safety will just refer you back to him.
Note: NEVER LEAVE THE LAB DOOR OPEN IF NOONE ELSE IS THERE! We found the door wide open the other day with a door stop. If that happens again all swipe cards could be disabled.
We have information about some cyber jobs and paid internships available. There is also the possibility of a work study position available with D4CS. Contact Prof Lovely by email for information.
The NSA Surveillance Project of John Jay's Cybercrime Studies Center has moved to a new, much more easily navigable website: www.cyberprivacymatters.org. Professor Schwartz and D4CS alum Aidan Booth The site aims to provide an alternative to the exclusive concern with Americans’ privacy interests that dominates discussions in the United States and to the failure to recognize that NSA surveillance is conducted in close cooperation with the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters (“GCHQ”) and the intelligence agencies of the other Five Eyes Partners (Canada, New Zealand, Australia). Please check out the site and mention it to others who might be interested.
