Dr. Judy Simon Awarded NSF Grant

For release:  September 24, 2013

Dr. Judy Simon, Professor of Management Information Systems and Co-Director of the Center for Information Assurance, has been awarded a two-year National Science Foundation (NSF) grant. This grant is in collaboration with investigators at Jackson State Community College and Tennessee Technical University.  Its long-term goal is to increase the number of women employed in cybersecurity careers by providing them with summer workshops containing interesting and engaging activities that are related to cybersecurity career topics.  This grant gives Dr. Simon two grants within the same year, as she also received a Department of Defense (DoD) grant for the 2013-2014 academic year.  Dr. Simon has received numerous DoD grants in previous years, either to provide scholarships for students interested in information assurance careers or to provide content that faculty can use to cover specific information assurance topics that are relevant for their courses.
