Robert Morris University recently received a $224,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to aid in the development of a Mobile Forensics and Security certificate program at RMU that will focus on teaching students to analyze and secure mobile devices and networks against cybercrime. The grant will also fund a “train the trainer” initiative in order to train information systems faculty at other institutions. RMU will partner with Middle Georgia State University, the Community College of Beaver County, and the Southeastern Advanced Cybersecurity Education Consortium to train 40 faculty members to teach the mobile security certificate program to their own students.
Work on the mobile security grant project begins this fall. Dr. Karen Paullet, Assistant Professor of Computer and Information Systems, is directing the grant project at RMU assisted by Dr. Jamie Pinchot, Associate Professor of Computer and Information Systems, and Dr. Sushma Mishra, Associate Professor of Computer and Information Systems. Dr. Fred Kohun, University Professor of Computer and Information Systems, will also be consulting on the project.
