The $56,000 gift will help support graduate students conducting research in the security cluster. It will allow students to reverse engineer and safely test malware in a secure environment so they can see malicious software in action while having the reassurance that it is contained.

Loeven, who helps manage global business development and strategic direction for GFI’s partner alliances, is an alumnus of the university.
