Georgetown Technology Management Student Wins First Place in Kaspersky Essay Contest
Danny Brothers, a master’s degree candidate in Technology Management at the Georgetown School of Continuing Studies, won first place in the Kaspersky Academy Paper Competition on cyber security topics. As winner of the 2014 Americas Round, he gets an expense-paid trip to Sweden where he will present his paper with the winners of the Asia-Pacific, Russia and European rounds.
“We are very proud to have Danny Brothers representing Georgetown in Stockholm this coming June,” said Dr. Beverly Magda, dean of the Technology Management program. “The Kaspersky Academy Conference, now in its seventh year, is a prestigious international event attended by top antivirus analysts, industry experts, scientists and professors.”
The theme of this year’s Kaspersky Academy conference series was “CyberSecurity for the Next Generation.” Georgetown’s new metro-accessible campus in downtown Washington, D.C. was chosen to host the Americas Round from March 31 to April 2, 2014.
