A pair of NDSU management information systems students presented at the North Dakota Cyber Security Conference on March 16 at NDSU’s Memorial Union.

Jordan Moore and Kayla Jones were part of a panel discussion, “Filling the Demand and the Need for an Educated Cyber Security Workforce.” The panel included professionals from NDSU, U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Cyber Innovation Center.

The conference brought together community members from education, government and industry to share strategies, best practices and innovative solutions to address today’s challenges in cyber security.

“The conference is a great event to discuss and learn about a variety of critical issues throughout the constantly changing world of cyber security,” Moore said.

The students networked with more than 350 information technology professionals from across the country.

“The demand for cyber security skills has increased drastically in the last five years,” said Enrique Garcia, NDSU lecturer and Forensic Computing Lab manager. “This conference exclusively focuses on cyber security, promoting education, awareness and bridging the needs of education and the industry.”

The conference was hosted by NDSU Information Technology, North Dakota Educational Technology Council, Information Technology Department and EduTech.
