Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) January 13, 2016
Educators and students are encouraged to submit proposals for the third annual Community College Cyber Summit (3CS), Friday through Sunday, July 22 to 24, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
3CS is the only national academic conference tailored to cybersecurity education at community colleges. With a high demand to fill cybersecurity jobs and lack of qualified employees, 3CS is making sure students are properly educated in the field by accurately instructing faculty and administrators.
This year’s theme is “Expanding the boundaries of cybersecurity programs at community colleges.” Ideas should follow one of three tracks: colleges and faculty new to cybersecurity that want to be introduced to this important arena; faculty and administrators familiar with the field that want to learn additional principles, safe practices and hands-on skills; and non-IT faculty in critical infrastructure fields interested in incorporating cybersecurity topics into their curricula.
All proposals should include resources needed to adopt any innovations in participants’ classrooms/programs. Proposals are due Feb. 1. For additional information or to fill out and submit the form online, visit 3CS.nationalcyberwatch.org.
