On June 7 Vladivostok welcomed Sergey Gordeychik, CTO of Positive Technologies, who came to congratulate the best teams and give them prices.  As a pleasant surprise, the guest from Moscow gave a lecture on gaps in information security, which smoothly turned into a friendly talk about various aspects of the issue.

The lecture was attended not only by FEFU students, but by future IT specialists from other universities of the city, as well.

Besides, CTO of Positive Technologies announced that FEFU had joined the Positive Education program initiated by Positive Technologies. The program will offer new educational methods aimed at training highly qualified IT specialists, which are so sought-after on the today's market.
