|BU students attend GrrCon|
Michael Rumbough, BU digital forensics major, learned about important concepts in the field, "As a Digital Forensics major hoping to go into cyber security, GrrConn I taught me crucial information I can use during my career. I learned about social engineering, a form of hacking which relies heavily on manipulating others to get malware or a virus onto a computer. Knowing about social engineering will help me prepare for a future career in cyber security because it will be a threat I will face during my job."
BU undergrad Lucas Pertschi learned about new careers available in the field. "The talks put on at the conference helped show us what individuals in the field are working on, or what they believe needs to be worked and focused on. They also can open some of our eyes to what sorts of positions we could work in, outside what we may have already heard of through professors or alumni."
