I have some good news for the New Year! Facebook will be "sponsoring" the CSC 143V Cybersecurity course in Spring 2018 (more about the course here and here). Effectively, this means that exclusively the students enrolled in CSC 143V will be eligible for various Facebook benefits including projects, Hofstra-exclusive internships, scholarships and other swag. E.g., top-performing students in the previous iteration of the course have been invited for all-expenses-paid visits to FB headquarters in San Francisco, and attendance at a cybersecurity conference.
Reminder: The course has no prereqs and will count as a CS elective for CS majors.
Happy New Year!
