HPU’s Goode presents paper at conference in Slovenia

BROWNWOOD – August 9, 2017 – Howard Payne University’s Jodi Goode, assistant vice president for information technology services, recently presented a paper on cybersecurity at the Knowledge Management (KM) Conference in Novo Mesto, Slovenia.

The international KM Conference, held at Faculty of Information Studies, provides a showcase for the latest research-in-practice that focuses on knowledge management and how it improves and sustains quality in academia, industry and government. The themes for this year’s conference were knowledge management, learning and information technology.

Goode was invited earlier this year to present the paper, titled “Towards empirical exploration of employee’s cybersecurity countermeasures awareness and skills: Differences in training delivery method and program type,” which is considered research-in-progress from her dissertation. She is a doctoral candidate pursuing her Ph.D. in information systems with a concentration in information security from Nova Southeastern University’s College of Engineering and Computing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The paper is co-authored by Dr. Yair Levy, professor of information systems and cybersecurity at Nova Southeastern University.

“KM 2017 was a great experience, with some of the most influential educators and researchers from the fields of information security and cybersecurity in attendance,” said Goode. “I had the opportunity to meet these individuals, receive feedback on my ongoing dissertation research and form relationships that will benefit my work at HPU.”

Dr. W. Mark Tew, provost and chief academic officer at HPU, called Goode exceptionally talented in the field of information technology.

“The campus community relies heavily on Jodi’s extensive knowledge,” he said. “We’re proud she had the opportunity to share with her colleagues around the world.”
