Greetings from the CSE Chair

Chairman Barrett Bryant

Dear CSE Alumni and Friends,

Great news to share with you in Spring 2012! Our Center for Information and Computer Security was named as one of the reasons the City of Denton was selected as one of the top U.S. cities in data security. We are now interviewing faculty candidates, some of whom work in security, and we plan to build upon our expertise in this area along with computer systems and intelligent systems through our future faculty hires.

Ferda Nur Alpaslan is our Alumni Focus in this issue. Dr. Alpaslan graduated with her PhD in Computer Science in 1993. As you will read, she is still involved with her major professor, Dr. Kathleen Swigger. Two more recent CSE alumni, Gary (Trey)Tartt and Cesar Ferrigno have formed smallToast and have developed an unofficial UNT app for mobile devices.

Our CSE Department is going to celebrate National Engineers Week February 20-24. You are invited back to be a "Professor for a Day" during that week. We welcome the opportunity to have you talk about your career experiences in Computer Science or Computer Engineering fields in our classes. If you can't come during National Engineers Week, you are invited to come when it is convenient for you. We are making plans for our 40th anniversary and would really like to have our alumni help us in planning it. Please contact me if you would like to be involved in this event.

Center for Information and Computer Security helps Denton achieve recognition as a data security center

The City of Denton has been named among the 10 best data security cities in the U.S by The Boyd Company's study, "Banking & Financial Services: A Comparative Cost Analysis for Information Assurance Operations." Cities were chosen based on their "robust bandwidth, telecommunications, power infrastructures, and favorable operating cost structures and secure location insulated from natural disasters," the study says. It compares the nation's largest regional centers and selected the best cities that met certain criteria for housing highly secure, low-risk and cost-effective data security operations for the banking and financial services industry.

One of the reasons for Denton's selection, according to the study, is because of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering's Center for Information and Computer Security. The CICS is an interdisciplinary center, bringing together individuals and organizations with an interest in the areas of information security, computer security, information assurance, and cybercrime. CICS has been recognized by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security as a "Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education."

Dr. Ram Dantu was interviewed for this Denton-Record Chronicle article and this Dallas Business Journal article. Dantu said, "Information assurance is being addressed at different angles at UNT." He added, for example, computer science, criminal justice and library information are some of the courses already addressing information assurance topics. In the future, Dantu said, UNT will host information assurance workshops in Denton.
