Organizations looking for information security talent should be looking to the nation’s community colleges and especially the 3CS.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) March 29, 2016
What better way for companies or businesses to get their name in the forefront of the brains of cybersecurity educators this summer than by sponsoring the Community College Cyber Summit (3CS), one of the largest gatherings of community college cybersecurity faculty in the world.
Community colleges are significantly influential in teaching a variety of fields related to cybersecurity. The 3CS is a prime avenue to access this specific group and get brand names out to these classroom decision makers. Past sponsors have included companies that develop cybersecurity hardware, software, and certification vendors, to name a few.
“Organizations looking for information security talent should be looking to the nation’s community colleges and especially the 3CS,” states Casey W. O’Brien, Executive Director at National CyberWatch Center. “The network producing the 3CS have been on the front lines of competency-based Information Security training and education for over 10 years. This network has mature, cost-effective, and scalable solutions to some of our country’s vexing workforce and talent shortages.”
There are three sponsorship levels—Silver, Gold and Platinum. For $1,500, Silver sponsors get their logos on display on the 3CS website and can present a poster at one of the conference coffee breaks. At $3,500, Gold sponsors get their logo on the 3CS banner, a display booth and access to the conference social media partnership, which reaches over 600 community colleges in all 50 states. For $5,000, Platinum sponsors get their logo on all conference-related material, a larger display booth, a guaranteed speaking engagement, and access to the 3CS integrated media and social media platform.
The 3CS is scheduled for July 22 to 24 in Pittsburgh, PA. Faculty from around the country are expected to attend thanks to support from the National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education centers: National CyberWatch Center, National Resource Center for Systems Security and Information Assurance (CSSIA), CyberWatch West (CWW), Cyber Security Education Consortium (CSEC), Broadening Advanced Technological Education Connections (BATEC), and Advanced Cyberforensics Education (ACE) Consortium.
