Cynthia’s spending her summer tracking down cyber-crime for the US Department of Justice.

CynthiaShaw_Seidenberg_DepOfJustice-205x3001. Who are you working with this summer? 

I am working for the US Department of Justice in the Criminal Division. Their purpose is to investigate and prosecute crimes on a federal level.

2. Can you tell us a little about what you are doing? 

My title is actually fancier than my job. I am called a high tech intern within the investigative unit. Basically I am working on various projects that involve computer forensics and their role in cyber crimes.

3. Is there a particular class or professor at Seidenberg that has helped you prepare for your current role?  

I think my computer forensics class with Professor Watkins was most helpful. He taught us the technical terms I would need to know, the importance of data integrity and even report writing. Each of these aspects play a vital role in my job this summer.

4. Does your new office have a favorite restaurant/hangout they go to after work?  

The other interns and I get together with the employees and do some bar trivia at a local spot. It’s a good way to unwind and get to know each other on a different level.

By day, Cynthia Shaw is an undergrad student at the Seidenberg School, majoring in information technology. By night, she’s a super hero that fights cyber-crime! Cynthia currently attends school at Pace University’s rather picturesque Pleasantville campus.

  1. Cynthia Shaw is an outstanding, young, and focused asset to any scholastic program that she becomes associated with! Her tenacity to detail and concentration is second to none! I consider Cynthia to not only be my “super hero” by day and night, but also my personal inspiration for the way that she excels in all that she puts her mind too! May her success’ be numerous and may they help set a standard for others to emulate!
