If you are interested in Computer Criminology, do not miss out on this unique opportunity to speak with a computer criminology alumnus about her experience in the program, her career post graduation, and how she obtained the Scholarship for Service (SFS).

Lauren Pearce will be the event’s visiting alumnus. Ms. Pearce graduated from Florida State University in spring of 2015 with her MS in Computer Criminology. The last year of her master’s program, she began researching malware analysis and reverse engineering. By graduation, she had signed a contract with Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT). There, she spent her first six months learning the basics of host and network forensics before returning to specialize in malware analysis.

Ms. Pearce will also be discussing the Scholarship for Service (SFS) Award. The SFS Scholarship is a fantastic opportunity available to computer science and computer criminology students, but comparatively few computer criminology students take advantage of it. Computer criminology students face unique challenges in in preparing for and obtaining the SFS scholarship. As a computer criminology SFS graduate, Ms. Pearce will be able to discuss the challenges and how to overcome them.

Don’t miss out! Make plans to attend today!
