DSU student accepts award at White House

DSU student Paul Dockter will accept an award at the White House Monday, June 27, for a public service video he created for the Stop. Think. Connect Campaign. The campaign is a national public awareness effort by the Department of Homeland Security to guide the nation to a higher level of Internet safety by challenging the American public to be more vigilant about practicing safe online habits.

The campaign asked the America public to create and submit video public service announcements encouraging their fellow citizens to practice online vigilance. Dockter made his video along with fellow student Devon Greene for Dr. Josh Pauli’s software security class at DSU in the spring 2010 semester. The video was one of three chosen for the award nationwide. The winning PSAs were chosen for their messages targeting teens, young adults, and parents, on how to protect against cyber bullying, cyber predators, and other criminal activity.

White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and other special guests, will be at the ceremony to recognize the winners of the challenge. Dockter is a Computer & Network Security major from Anchorage, AK. Greene is a Computer & Network Security major from Dallas, TX.
