Courtney Kanopka ’17, who works fulltime for New York State, was chosen as a Capital Region “Women to Watch” in science and technology by the Times Union. Kanopka, a single parent and first-generation college student enrolled in the new digital forensics major, is the youngest of the 10 chosen and the only student. She said, “Cybersecurity, which is a big field now, has always been my passion, and digital forensics is the program of the future. Cyber-attacks happen every day, and the number of them will grow rapidly every year. There is excellent job security in the digital forensics field.” The first class of digital forensics students graduates this spring.
