The Online Master of Science in Food Safety Program has recently made improvements to the VM 821 course, Food Protection and Defense, led by Dr. Andrew Huff, assistant professor for the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences.
VM 821 has been available to MSU Online Master of Science in Food Safety students as an elective option since the beginning of the program. Huff and his team recently updated the course with important information on cyber security, information security, and threat identification. Students will gain a great deal of knowledge from this team-taught course with faculty and industry leaders from around the United States, a group of contributors with impressive expertise on food protection and defense.
“VM 821 Food Protection and Defense provides the foundation for students to think critically about intentional attacks on the global food supply and helps them develop the food defense mindset. With the food defense mindset, students are able to independently evaluate, develop, and implement effective food defense policies, best practices, and strategies in the real world,” says Huff.
