"Being able to break security doesn't make you a hacker anymore than being able to hotwire cars makes you an automotive engineer. "  (Eric Raymond)

Network security, information assurance, penetration testing, hacking.  Whatever you want to call it---it's my business.  Come to DSU, contact me, collaborate, teach, learn, send me an interesting article, or just sit and talk. 

I'm proud to say that DSU's security curriculum is very cutting edge.  Our degrees focus heavily on offensive security, penetration testing, and ethical hacking.  Take a look at the classes we offer and you'll see what I mean (B.S. Computer and Network Security / Masters of Science in Information Assurance)
