Ready to create or further develop a cybersecurity program at your community or technical college? This workshop is designed for current faculty and administrators who want to develop a new or improve an existing cybersecurity program at their regionally accredited community or technical college. Building your cybersecurity program is a great way to increase student enrollments and prepare them for a high paying, high demand industry. Participation stipend available for eligible participants who successfully complete a workshop.

Workshop topics include:

  • How to utilize national standards (NICE, CAE) to develop or improve a cybersecurity program.
  • Steps to develop a cybersecurity program, including cost estimates and curriculum resources.
  • Funding sources for proposed or existing cybersecurity programs.
  • Tips and resources for a successful grant proposal.

Corrinne Sande, NCyTE Director / Principal Investigator (PI) and Director of Computer Sciences and Information Systems at Whatcom Community College (WCC), will lead the workshops.
