Prof. Bonakdarpour features in MSUToday

With so much of our lives being stored online and in digital databases, it’s reassuring to know there are researchers out there like Borzoo Bonakdarpour of Michigan State University. 

Michigan State University Associate Professor Borzoo Bonakdarpour

Bonakdarpour, an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, works to prevent information that people want to keep private from leaking into the public.

Talk of data breaches probably calls to mind one (or several) of the well-publicized examples of people being hacked through phishing scams or lax security practices.
