Cyber security consulting firm Paraben has named Robert Morris University the “Cyber School of the Future 2017“. Paraben CEO Amber Schroader honored RMU with the award at the Paraben Forensic Innovations Conference. The conference was a private industry and law enforcement symposium held at the Moon Township campus in August.
Schroader singled out Dr. Karen Paullet, associate professor of computer and information systems, for her work in mobile forensics in the classroom and National Science Foundation-funded workshops.
Also announced at the conference was the newly launched RMU Center for Cyber Research and Training. The center offers customized training workshops on maintaining network security and deterring and detecting unauthorized access. It also shares techniques for gathering evidence from mobile devices for law enforcement investigations, and will conduct research in cyber security, cyber forensics, and other cyber-related topics.
