‘Cyber Mom’ awarded endowed professorship at Utica University

Posted

UTICA — Utica University has awarded the Karl Zimpel Endowed Professorship in Cybersecurity to Leslie Corbo, associate professor of cybersecurity and director of undergraduate cybersecurity programs.

The endowed professorship, made possible by support from Fredericka “Fritzie” Paine in memory of her brother, is one of the most prestigious honors an institution can award a faculty member.

Corbo completed both bachelor’s and master’s degrees while raising her two children, and earned her doctor of science in information assurance and cybersecurity from Capitol Technology University as a grandmother. The first and only cybersecurity professional to publish in the Journal of American Medical Association Open Network, Corbo has numerous publications, presentations and professional accomplishments to her name.

Often referred to as “Cyber Mom,” Corbo consistently and continuously puts her students and colleagues as a top priority. Mentoring junior faculty members through the tenure process and adjusting the curriculum to keep both students and the institution on the cutting edge of the field, Professor Corbo exemplifies what it means to be a lifelong teacher, UU representatives said.
