Welcome back our rights out accelerator -- career accelerator we adopted Darren Hayes.
With that -- university UIDSCIS.
Program chair and an assistant professor there.
Great here -- article on you but away which is.
How we found you and especially recently it seems like -- so much cybercrime out there to the coming from rogue nations.
And it's affecting how we bank it's -- coming up on our Smartphones on social media.
This is a booming field if you're in the business of fighting against it.
Absolutely absolutely that students that graduate from our programs are coming out with.
Even five job offered opportunities.
When they graduate it's a tremendous feel especially.
In the area of computer forensics which is this relatively new field.
That's built upon that the skills that of its security.
How often how long have you offered cyber security tight -- for.
We -- -- offers computer security courses for you know well over it at.
Decade probably a couple of solid -- nothing but what is nothing new what is new is the area of computer forensics of and especially the area of mobile forensics which is where we have built up a specialty.
And are focusing a lot of our efforts through government grounds and that kind of thing.
And the reason is that.
Essentially -- -- government grant would be the department defense saying hey our our website keeps getting half tweeting -- the hackers are coming from China.
It's obviously a problem we're gonna pump money into it.
Sure at the the Obama administration has made cyber security a priority.
And government agencies like the Department of Defense and the National Science Foundation.
Have developed a lot of grounds to encourage more students to think about a career insecurity.
Or in computer forensics.
And so we've been able to take advantage of a lot of these opportunities.
And been able to get more students involved in security.
It's at -- when did you really see the field start to heat up when the student really become interested.
I I guess ice I became involved with an organization called -- high technology crime investigation association.
Where a lot of members are law enforcement.
Guns so they began to tell me about their work can I solve many of them retire.
And get these great positions with other companies consultant as good as consultants or or professionals.
Because the need is so -- at the moment particularly in the area for investigations and commuter forensics.
So that's when -- started developing more specific course -- Yes yes and especially more recently in the area of mobile forensics where -- -- develop courses that the undergraduate and graduate level.
Now -- because of the need out there I mean if you look at any district attorney's office many law enforcement agency.
Holmes -- associate with every type of investigation whether it's kidnapping -- homicide.
Knows what you have someone's phone you have everything -- -- need -- -- bank on our phones.
We update our you know personal information hundreds aren't we we trust and we know we shouldn't but we do you sure -- quite sure on the -- -- student interested in these courses are you feeling.
If they are interested I didn't -- because they think it's interesting or because they know this is for the jobs are and -- you kind of get more interest at same time.
Sure well I think you know in this country -- isn't a problem with getting enough students involved in computer science and programming and technology.
I did exactly.
Exactly but I think the that the whole notion of CSI.
The investigate -- can pull factor exactly exactly starts to get them a little bit emphasis.
But then when they -- take the course that I talk about.
Agency relationships we happen how the job potential than they suddenly take more and more courses and yet forensics -- security.
And they they develop a passion theory it is so -- Like it and then realized that it works out for them because he said they're facing fortified job offers so yes I mean many people will be lucky to get bored but interviews we're talking -- offers from real companies looking to his own money once they graduate to the I'm and you have undergraduate and graduate work and Smartphone forensics and.
-- -- Yes yes exactly I mean it's quite astonishing the the type of information that you get from a -- people think because it's -- small device.
Maybe it doesn't have as much evidence is a lot top.
So it it actually has a lot more evidence can find out where your tweeting from.
Everything that's on your FaceBook page is on your Smartphone.
And in many cases of encrypted so it's pretty scary the type of mission.
You have you found Paulson.
This problem -- secured the biggest threats are coming from -- The biggest threats are coming from.
A tax we've seen certain nations Iraq China.
Who have made a concerted effort to trying to gather evidence the Smartphones today are the weakest link because many of them are are.
On encrypted the data that they hold and so many organizations are focused on the desktop and walks on there but they forget about all that -- information.
That's -- from the people are taking home and so that's a big problem.
Where he's -- the industry of sever security in the future -- the threats that.
We might not quite know about just yet but the author -- -- sure are you watching out for.
Sure well I think one of the big areas of interest right now.
Is it network security and network forensics because when you hear about these concerted attacks you know home of Department of Homeland Security suffers.
You know millions of attacks on a daily basis and when you think that you need people to monitor these networks understand what's happening with these networks.
And what are the issues today is that a lot of traditional security practices that people have talked for years and years just don't apply anymore because.
These people are so sophisticated.
-- what they do and how they attack and how they steal data.
And it's in -- sophisticated sure -- prevention.
Isn't anyone listening thank you for chatting -- once again back up back up back up the only way to -- -- ability.
You -- -- cyber experts there is no -- 100% guarantee to stop that Jeff obviously that's very fair.
That's -- Darren Hayes thank you so much for sharing that.
We have your website.
On the screen right now for anybody interested Pace University certainly has courses in this booming field I'm -- -- now know about it.
On prayer accelerated Tuesday there's one place besides health care for you can find -- -- -- -- so -- -- --
