Boise State students and Institute for Pervasive Cybersecurity Director Ed Vasko were featured on Idaho News Channel 6. According to the story, “Boise State University’s Cyberdome platform works to fill two needs in the cybersecurity industry: more cybersecurity professionals and better cyber protection for rural communities.
“I was a teacher for over ten years in a local school district. I have a background in math and engineering and I thought, time for a career change,” said Sara Mount, a masters student at Boise State who works on the training materials for undergrad students involved in the Cyberdome.
She says cybersecurity is important because of growth in related fields.
“The technology field is growing here and cybersecurity needs to grow along with that, hand in hand,” Mount said.
