Bio:
Mr. Griffin has been an instructor for the School of Professional Studies since 2004. His core teaching focuses on Computer and Management Information Systems with a special interest in cyber security, programming, and systems analysis and design. Mr. Griffin holds his Bachelor of Science degree from Peru State College and a Master’s in Business Administration from Chadron State College.

Mr. Griffin led the effort to build the current CMIS computer lab with student research and engagement in the construction project.  Students built the lab from components and are responsible for most day to day operations including maintaining an Active Directory server and file storage.   Mr. Griffin has been an active participant in creating and planning for courses that teach to the most recent and relevant technology needs for today’s society.

Current research includes current technology trends and issues including the very real threat of cyber security issues.  These topics are included in many of the CMIS core classes and are open to eager learners from other disciplines.  Mr. Griffin is proud to have led the effort to include a dedicated Cyber-Security course in the CMIS core and works to take students to local and regional Cyber-Security events including the Nebraska Cyber Security Conference to reinforce these concepts.

Prior to attending and working at Peru State College, Mr. Griffin was involved in the telecom sector including start up CLECs and large multi-national corporations.  Currently he lives in Auburn, Nebraska with his two amazing daughters and his fiancé.  When not engaging with technology, Mr. Griffin enjoys reading and home remodeling.
