Cyber Initiative sends 3 to RSA as Security Scholars

The Stanford Cyber Initiative is pleased to be sending three PhD students to the RSA conference in San Francisco as RSA Security Scholars. RSA Conference Security Scholar Program occurs during RSAC and connects the brightest up-and-coming cybersecurity students to leading experts, peers and conference attendees. Its goal is to share knowledge, experience and connections to enrich the discourse on how to stay ahead of cyber threats. The scholars will begin their experience with a team-building exercise followed by a welcome reception on the Expo floor featuring hundreds of the leading corporate security companies. The second day, the scholars will enjoy reserved seating at the opening keynote, listen to industry luminaries discuss trends in the industry, participate in a learning lab on artificial intelligence and hold an open Poster Session where they will share their current areas of expertise. Their day will conclude with an invitation only dinner with leading experts in the field. Beginning on Wednesday, the students will be encouraged to attend any of the 400+ sessions available at this year’s Conference. All students will be granted a Full Conference Pass and are encouraged to attend sessions that complement their interests.

Our Security Scholars are Yan Michalevsky, Henry Corrigan-Gibbs, and Camelia Simoiu. Their work includes system security, mobile security and privacy, crowdsourcing and human-computer interaction. If you're at RSA, stop by and say hello!
