When Nasir Memon, a computer science and engineering professor at New York University, was first starting his cybersecurity program, he wanted to offer more hands-on experiences for his students.
“I always thought cybersecurity was not a topic you talk about, but where you learn by doing things,” says Memon.
So he organized a cybersecurity awareness event that involved a team competition — with the goal of solving security problems.
