Governor endorses DSU’s Cyber Security Lunch and Learn Series
Dakota State University, along with support from the Cyber Security Industry Advisory Board, launched an initiative to showcase exciting careers within the area of cyber security in the state of South Dakota. The series has already hosted Jim Edman from the South Dakota Bureau of Information and Telecommunications and Philip Egeberg from Daktronics, Inc. The spring series features William Bushee from BrightPlanet on February 4, Andy Deinert from Vantage Point on March 18, and Amos Aesoph from SDN Communications on April 1.
S.D. Gov. Dennis Daugaard endorsed the program and recognized the importance it serves for both students and employers.
“South Dakota has many career opportunities in Cyber Security, in the private sector and also in government,” said Gov. Daugaard. “Attend Dakota State University’s Cyber Security Lunch and Learn Career Series and learn about exciting careers in our own backyard. My sincere thanks to Dakota State University and Secure Banking Solutions for their efforts to promote careers within the state of South Dakota.”
Dr. Ashley Podhradsky, Assistant Professor of Information Assurance/Forensics and co-chair of the Cyber Security Industry Advisory Board, helped to create the series with Jon Waldman of Secure Banking Solutions as a way for DSU students currently enrolled or interested in cyber security to gain awareness of the increasing opportunities in South Dakota.
“There are many exciting positions in the area of cyber security in South Dakota. There is no need to leave the state to be able to have a cutting edge career in cyber security,” said Podhradsky.
All sessions are held in East Hall 100 starting at 12:15. Free pizza is provided to attendees compliments of Secure Banking Solutions.
