Attending the SBA Technology Summit felt a lot like coming home since Roosevelt plays an integral role in providing educational access for Schaumburg and neighboring communities. Sivling Lam Graduate Admission Counselor

Roosevelt University was represented at the Schaumburg Business Association (SBA) inaugural Technology Summit on November 15. Approximately 75 people attended the event which included a keynote address by an FBI special agent and sessions on corporate cyber vulnerability, additive manufacturing, and artificial intelligence.

Sivling Lam, graduate admission counselor for the College of Arts and Sciences, staffed an information table and spoke with members of the local business community about Roosevelt’s new BS in Cyber and Information Security degree and about our MS in Computer Science degree.

“Attending the SBA Technology Summit felt a lot like coming home since Roosevelt plays an integral role in providing educational access for Schaumburg and neighboring communities,” said Lam. “It was wonderful connecting with members of the SBA, many of whom are small business owners, to hear firsthand their concerns about protecting crucial and proprietary company information.”

One of the summit attendees remarked, “I’m grateful that Roosevelt is offering a degree in cyber and information security. Roosevelt is filling a much needed educational and training void to minimize and protect against cyber and security threats.”
