Dakota State University’s CybHER program has received a donation from a digital forensics company. AccessData, an Exterro company, has raised and donated 29-hundred dollars to CybHER. The funding will help CybHER’s efforts with outreach including the GenCybHER Girls in Cybersecurity Camp, held annually at DSU. The CybHER mission is to empower, motivate, and educate girls in cybersecurity.
The company raised the funds at their trade show booth during the Techno Security Conference early in June.
AccessData’s Keely Nelson said that there is also a blog highlighting the company’s participation with the camp held recently at DSU.
The software company also supports the annual camp through a live presentation by one of their staff. Justin Tolman, director of North American Training, showed the 6th through 9th grade campers how digital footprints are recoverable, and what the field of digital forensics is like.
