Summary

As the popularity of social media technology rises, strategies are needed for employing this technology to support entertainment, education, scientific exploration and business use. My objective is to share these experiences with students seeking to learn real life practices. My degree pursuit is in computer science with a concentration in emerging media. My dissertation focus involves digital security breaches as well as non-digital security breaches in the education forum. I anticipate doing research on breach types that include but are not limited to; exposure; hack; insider attacks; lost, stolen or missing soft or hardware; malware; physical paper exposures; subcontractor violations and unauthorized access. Current GPA is 4.0
