Indiana University of Pennsylvania Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) is a public research university in Indiana County, Pennsylvania, United States. It is one of the two largest universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) and thus the commonwealth’s fourth or fifth largest public university. As of fall 2014, IUP had 14,471 undergraduates and 2,257 graduate students attending the university. The university is 55 miles (89 km) northeast of Pittsburgh. It is governed by a local Council of Trustees and the Board of Governors of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. IUP has branch campuses at Punxsutawney, Northpointe, and Monroeville. IUP is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), and Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). A research-intensive institution, the university has been included in the 2013 list of “Best Northeastern” schools by The Princeton Review, and IUP’s Eberly College of Business was included in the list of “Best Business Schools” in the Northeast.

Each year, the Institute for Cyber Security, in collaboration with the Computer Science Department, Center for Teaching Excellence, and IT Support Services, hosts Cyber Security/IA Day. This daylong event features nationally recognized security experts as well as speakers from regional law enforcement, government, security industry, and academia.

Career Thoughts

I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to manage and run one of the biggest and most active forums on the Internet dealing with cyber warfare and cyber security – CSFI (The Cyber Security Forum Initiative). With over 16 years of cyber security experience, I continue to actively raise Cyber Warfare/Cyber Security awareness worldwide. I have worked as a Chief Security Engineer for AT&T, where I designed and approved secure networks for MSS. I have also consulted for several governments, military and private institutions on best network security practices throughout my career.

CSFI and its divisions CSFI-CWD (Cyber Warfare Division), CSFI-LPD (Law and Policy Division) and CSFI-WD (Wireless Division) continue to grow and expand with more than 60,000 information security members.

One of my personal goals is to serve our security community to the best of my abilities, in the protection and defense of our American national security interests, the American people, and that of our international partners. I am always ready to serve and to give of my time and skills to help our society with the growing problems we experience in cyberspace. I thank God and my family for the opportunities I have had in life and the most precious of all opportunities, which is the chance to serve others. I love what I do, and I appreciate all the support I have received from friends, family and our CSFI members.
