GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Students at Guilford Technical Community College are working with North Carolina A&T University to study cyber security.
The News & Record of Greensboro reported (http://bit.ly/1flXitm) the schools have developed a research partnership.
The program brings the college's cybercrime technology program together to work with two computer science programs at the university.
Computer science department head Gerry Dozier says that students from the two schools will work on problems in cyber security and privacy.
Students in the technical college program already are learning how to retrieve information from computer hard drives, cellphones, tablets and other electronic devices. The information can be used in criminal and civil cases.
Researchers at North Carolina A&T are working on facial and iris recognition technology that could replace computer passwords and other security systems.
