    Who Should Attend:

    Faculty and administrators seeking to create, develop or improve a cybersecurity program at their college are invited to attend. Corrinne Sande, Director/PI of NCyTE will present a Program Development and Technical Assistance workshop designed to help faculty or administrators  add or enhance cybersecurity programs of study at their college. Through Ms. Sande’s efforts, Whatcom Community College became the first National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense—Two-Year Education (CAE2Y) on the West Coast.

    The workshop is split into three sessions to allow time to fully cover the subject matter. Please allocate time to attend all three.

    A limited number of travel stipends will be available to assist with travel expenses to Session 3 at 3CS.

    Corrinne Sande is the director of the National Cybersecurity Resource Center funded by the National Security Agency, and Principal Investigator for NCyTE, a National Science Foundation–funded Advanced Technological Education (ATE) national resource center that works to grow and strengthen the nation’s cybersecurity workforce.  Both centers are hosted at Whatcom Community College (WCC). Ms. Sande also serves as the Principal Investigator of  the Catalyzing Computing and Cybersecurity in Community Colleges (C5) NSF-funded grant and is the Director of Computer Science and Computer Information Systems at WCC.

    C5 Pilot Testing:

    The C5 project is soliciting high school teachers to pilot test 3 cyber lessons in existing AP CSP classes, after the AP exam. The three lessons are the CIA Triad, Personal Data Vulnerabilities, and Identity, Authentication and Authorization. A stipend ($100) will be provided for participation in a one hour introductory zoom meeting and completion of the evaluation survey after pilot testing.

    The zoom session for pilot participants will be scheduled the last week of April. The Pilot Testing Period will be May 18th - June 12th.

    C5 Project Background:

    The Catalyzing Computing and Cybersecurity in Community Colleges (C5) National Science Foundation funded project objective is to integrate cybersecurity module content into an existing AP CSP course and provide a demonstration of how this was accomplished, laying the foundation for a College Board approved AP CSP-Cyber course. The 13 cyber lessons were developed by high school teachers working with the C5 Community College subject matter experts.

    This program is made possible by the National Science Foundation under grant number 1548315

    The Role of Community Colleges in Cybersecurity Education:

    FUTURE DIRECTIONS:

    2020 Summit

    Invitation Only    |    Registration Required

    June 8, 4:00 pm - June 10, 1:00 pm


    Alexandria, VA

    In 2002, the National Science Foundation (NSF) co-sponsored a workshop and resulting report titled Protecting Information: The Role of Community Colleges in Cybersecurity Education. Nearly 20 years later, however, cybersecurity education has evolved dramatically – and along with it the cybersecurity threats and needs of the nation.

    The US is facing a growing critical shortage of qualified workers to fill cybersecurity positions across all industries and services. Community colleges have proven to play a vital role in reaching untapped, diverse, potential new student populations to fulfill these positions through innovative student outreach and highly relevant programming.

    The upcoming 2020 Summit will bring together leaders and stakeholders in cybersecurity education including community college faculty and administrators, corporate partners, and government representatives. Participants from across the nation will examine progress and impact made by community colleges to national and economic security and the workforce since the initial conference in 2002, and will contribute to recommendations for future strategies and initiatives.

    As an invited participant, your registration indicates your willingness and commitment to contribute your expertise and perspective throughout the two-day conference. We greatly appreciate your dedication of time and knowledge to the future of cybersecurity education.

    COVID-19 NCyTE is actively monitoring the rapidly evolving situation related to the novel coronavirus and following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). At this time we encourage you to register for the Summit to help with planning, however travel purchases should be delayed until you receive notification from NCyTE confirming the Summit will be held as scheduled. All registered attendees will be notifiied directly. We appreciate your patience and support.

    Register by April 20th to ensure your participation in this event.
