Hannah B. Williams
Hannah Williams is Cybersecurity and Digital Forensics major with a focus in Cybersecurity and a minor in Data Analytics. She is a rising junior but hopes to stay an extra year to enroll in the Graduate Program for Cybersecurity and Information Assurance. Originally, she attended her freshmen year at Clarion University of Pennsylvania focusing on law studies. However, after acquiring a long-term job at a local law firm she decided to dedicate her studies towards the Cybersecurity field after seeing how outdated and unsecure some companies truly are. During the longevity of her life, Hannah experienced first-hand how to own and operate your own business from her father. After seeing the true reality of running a business day in and day out, this inspired her to investigate possible business ideas at a very young age. By taking her background knowledge and doing outside research on today’s current trends and upcoming trends Hannah was able to outline a rough business plan for something that she is confident and passionate about. The overarching goal within every decision and action she makes it to not only to become the best version of herself possible but to ensure happiness by doing so.
