Cybersecurity Challenge (2023)

2023 Cybersecurity Challenge Winners: 

From March 30 - April 1, AIS Student Chapter members from attend the AIS 2023 Student Chapter Leadership Conference hosted by Florida International University. In total there were 186 registrants (134 students and 52 faculty) representing 25 universities and 3 countries. Students participated in competitions, learned from women at Microsoft, hosted leadership workshops, and earned awards for their competition solutions. The competition judging committees represented both industry and academia.

“Our student chapter members demonstrated incredible creativity and professionalism during this year’s competitions,” shared AIS AVP of Student Chapters Alex Barsi Lopes. “The talent and hard work put into the solutions shows that the future of Information Systems is bright.”

The Cybersecurity Challenge encouraged students to design a budget for a cybersecurity function (people, process, technology) that suffices for protecting against common and anticipated cybersecurity threats and that considers regulatory compliance requirements. The plan should consider the needs after the EMR-Cloud migration.
