This week, the Brown University Executive Master in Cybersecurity (EMCS) Class of 2019 will be in residence in San Francisco for a week of experiential learning, classroom activity, and preliminary capstone “flash” presentations. The cohort will meet with business leaders from some of Silicon Valley’s most famous global players, cutting-edge service providers, and non-government organizations.
Though not on campus, coursework will continue.
- Brown Computer Science Professors Roberto Tamassia and Bernardo Palazzi will wrap up the Applied Cryptography and Data Privacy course.
- EMCS faculty member and partner at Robinson+Cole, Linn Freedman, will kick off her half of the Privacy and Personal Data Protection course – sharing her insights from the cybersecurity challenges facing global Fortune 100 companies today.
- Ravi Pendse will launch the Management of IT Systems and Cybersecurity Risks course including a guest CEO and vivid stories from his vast experience.
The week will see each student presenting a short “flash” talk on their progress with their Critical Challenge Projects, a capstone requirement for the EMCS degree. The non-stop schedule includes a number of social events in the city where students will get the chance to mingle with our newly graduated EMCS Class of 2018, other Brown alums, and some special guests.
