On April 24, 2017, RMU held a Research & Grants Expo highlighting a variety of faculty research and grant projects. All of the RMU campus was invited to attend this event. Dr. Karen Paullet presented the Mobile Forensics and Security Project, an NSF-funded grant. Dr. Paullet is the PI on the grant, along with Dr. Jamie Pinchot (Co-PI), Dr. Sushma Mishra (Co-PI), and Dr. Fred Kohun. Mobile security and forensics is an underrepresented area of study that is increasingly important in our current society. This research will advance knowledge in the field of mobile cybersecurity and mobile forensics through a train-the-trainer program for 50 faculty members from universities across the United States. Twenty-five faculty were trained in July 2016 and the remaining half will be trained this year. Dr. Paullet also highlighted a new online certificate offered by RMU in Mobile Forensics and Security (MFS). This certificate is now available and you can learn more about it here: Mobile Forensics and Security Certificate Program.
