Janice Paulson

Janice Paulson

Faculty Advisor: Dr. Aunshul Rege

Janice holds Summa Cum Laude and Cum Laude undergraduate degrees in Computer Network Engineering and Computer Network Security from Delaware Technical and Community College and Wilmington University. In 2010 she founded Delaware’s first annually reoccurring multi day information security conference, Security BSides Delaware. To celebrate BSidesDE’s 5th year, “Spawn Camp” was started to allow for dedicated children’s events. These serve to guide curiosity in ethical ways while focusing on STEM interests.

Her recent professional life has focused on the compliance areas of information security in critical infrastructure, including risk mitigation strategies, physical and logical security audits and operational legal review of contracts and other security agreements based on a variety of compliance frameworks. She’s a member of Infragard, and participates in other local events including the Philadelphia Area Electronic Crimes Task Force and has been a panelist for the Philadelphia Bar Association’s committee on E-commerce and Cyber Security.

As a graduate student, she is eager to approach cyber security from the criminal justice perspective. Traditionally cyber security is primarily focused on the technical aspects of information systems. Examining crime theories is a fascinating way to build more complete risk mitigation strategies that consider the adversarial models becoming apparent in the industry. Additionally, she is excited to apply her industry experience towards an NSF funded research grant towards developing frameworks to better secure our nation’s cyber-physical systems.
