BHEF summit on cybersecurity at UMass Boston on Tues. Dec 2nd, 2014


Dr. Xinwen Fu attended the BHEF (The Business-Higher Education Forum) summit on cybersecurity at UMass Boston on Tues. Dec 2nd, 2014. It was a cold day. He came back home through the i93 tunnel around 4:00PM and the traffic was not too bad.

The summit provides some information. Dr. Fu likes this slide from Dr. Victor Piotrowski, a NSF program director. The middle column of the chart shows who is hiring cyber security graduates from the NSF SFS program. Victor also informed us that the security clearance is critical for government hiring. Students with oversea connections may not be wanted. This makes sense.
