As the second annual Student360 event came to an end, our team could not be more pleased with how the event turned out! This year’s event, which was held at Best Buy headquarters on February 24, was a big success. We are so grateful that our staff, sponsors, speakers and attendees traveled through the unexpected Minnesota snow to participate in this exciting day.

“Loved presenting at #Student360 yesterday! Kudos to the organizers and attendees. Future of #cybersecurity looks promising!” @DealyMahler
“Great conference and great content. It was an honor to present on how to protect the power grid and about cyber security career progression. I hope to see you all next year. Thank you @Secure360” @JackBeNimble25
“Things I learned at #student360: everybody fears death by PowerPoint, you can hack using sql, don’t burn your bridges, someone’s probably using a camera, and that I have a lot of studying to do! Can’t wait for next year.” @tmpinsnty
What we loved
Seeing the passion each student has for their unique area of study is incredibly inspiring! We love planning this event for students because, after all, they are our future security professionals. Watching students network with speakers, sponsors and fellow peers was great! Our mock interviews were definitely a hot commodity – not a single time slot went unfilled! The fact that students drove anywhere from 20 minutes to 4 hours just to attend this year’s Student360 is incredible. Talk about dedication!
