Volunteer of the month – Rushi Chakrabarti

Computer scientist Rushi Chakrabarti volunteered to speak at two different SOeC-sanctioned cybersecurity events when a previously scheduled coworker was unable to attend. With limited time to prepare, Rushi keynoted the North County Chamber of Commerce’s cybersecurity event on January 23, and then took part in a panel discussion and Q&A session on January 28 at the SDG&E Innovation Center. Rushi’s selfless support of both his coworker and SOeC can serve us all as a shiny example of the difference one man can make.
