Carnegie Mellon CyLab Attracts Top Journalists
To Second Annual Cybersecurity Media Fellowship Program

PITTSBURGH—Carnegie Mellon University's CyLab will host two top journalists, Aug. 11–12, for its second annual media fellowship program.

The national journalists are Josh Fischman, senior editor of science and technology for The Chronicle of Higher Education, and Michael S. Mimoso, editor of Information Security Magazine.

"The fellowship enables leading science and information technology journalists to broaden their knowledge of cybersecurity issues, and provides a great opportunity for our outstanding faculty to deepen their knowledge about how the media work," said University Professor Pradeep K. Khosla, founder of Carnegie Mellon CyLab and dean of the College of Engineering.

The media fellows meet informally with researchers in labs and in the field. Their interviews span topics ranging from next generation secure networks to secure home computing. They will also learn about research under way to improve hardware and software technology for mobile devices, including studies of how people work and collaborate, and how new applications and service can change their lives.

Carnegie Mellon CyLab is a university-wide, multidisciplinary initiative involving more than 200 faculty, students and staff at Carnegie Mellon that builds on more than two decades of the university's leadership in information technology. CyLab also works closely with the CERT Coordination Center, a leading, internationally recognized center for Internet security expertise.
