Hi Everyone! Just thought I'd share a bit good news with the board. I successfully defended my dissertation today and have completed the D.Sc. program at Dakota State University. I selected a specialization of Information Assurance and Computer Security. I started the program in August 2009 and my degree will officially post on May 2013. So a total of 3.5 years to complete the program or so. Dakota State accepted my M.S. in Information Systems as the equivalent of their MSIS degree and I was able to waive quite a bit of the masters level courses. Overall a great experience!
