Rochester, N.Y. (PRWEB) May 12, 2015
Logical Operations, the world’s leading provider of information technology instructor-led courseware, announces a new partnership with Rochester Institute of Technology in support of cybersecurity education initiatives.
Logical Operations is dedicated to enabling professionals to become the first line of response against cyber-attacks through hands-on, instructor-led training that will prepare IT professionals to tackle real-life security incidents. As part of their dedication to cybersecurity education, Logical Operations has partnered with Rochester Institute of Technology to support numerous cybersecurity training initiatives. Logical Operations has established The Logical Operations Scholarship for Computing Security, which will be awarded to one Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences student in the computing security department per year. Logical Operations is also a founding sponsor of an RIT-sanctioned regional hacking competition slated for fall 2015, which will give students an opportunity to put the skills learned in class to test in a fast-paced environment. In addition, Logical Operations is donating technology equipment to be used in RIT’s computing security department labs. Students in RIT’s computing security program will also attend an exclusive pilot class of Logical Operations’ CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response course in fall 2015, providing them with the skills to analyze threats, secure networks, handle incidents, and utilize other critical security skills necessary to ensure that they can protect organizations from cyber threats once they are on the job.
“We are thrilled to partner with Rochester Institute of Technology in support of cybersecurity education,” said Bill Rosenthal, CEO, Logical Operations. “Now more than ever, building cybersecurity skills at the college level, prior to students entering the workforce, is critical. This will lead to more qualified IT professionals who are ready to protect and defend their future organizations from imminent security threats.”
“With a growing demand for cybersecurity professionals, now is the right time for students to be getting into computing security and we are excited to partner with Logical Operations in allowing more students to do so,” said Bo Yuan, associate professor and chair of RIT’s Department of Computing Security. "The work Logical Operations does is important to promoting the awareness of cybersecurity issues and educating the employees of companies who are responding to those challenges that we continually hear about in the news. RIT prides itself on its interactive learning experiences, including the cooperative education program, and partnering with Logical Operations will provide even more hands-on experiences for these future professionals. ”
