The Worcester Business Journal reported on WPI creating a Master’s in Cyber Security, a new graduate program that prepares students to be leaders in the fields of cyber security and computer science. The program launches in fall 2021 and applications are currently being accepted. “We recognize that the workforce needs professionals who can combine technical expertise in security with an understanding of its impact on people and businesses,” Craig Shue, associate professor of computer science, said in a statement.
Time interviewed Craig Shue, associate professor of computer science, for this article (scroll down to 8th graph). Shue told Time he agrees hackers are likely getting Rings users’ account information from third parties. “I would also encourage everybody to do their own form of risk assessment and determine what they need in these devices and whether it’s worth the risk to have that functionality,” he added.
