Beyond the Classroom

Cyber Awareness Presentations

The Cyber Security Center not only promotes cyber awareness within the CSUSB community but we have also shared our knowledge of web safety with our surrounding communities. We have done presentations for many different organizations, including, but not limited to:

  • Redlands Police Department
  • San Bernardino County Sheriffs Department
  • Clement Middle School
  • Department of Homeland Security
  • Chaffey Community College
  • Cathedral High School
  • Bourns Engineering
  • Redlands Market Night

In these presentations, we encourage others to use best practices when surfing the web and teach them the basic dos and don'ts of cyber awareness. If you are interested in having a presentation in your community or organization, please visit this link to fill out the Presentation Request Form.

Women in Cyber Security Conference 2018 (WiCyS)

The WiCyS initiative was launched in 2013 with support from a National Science Foundation grant for a collaborative project between Tennessee Tech, University of Memphis (Dr. Judith Simon) and Jackson State Community College (Dr. Tom Pigg and Ms. Lisa Matlock). Since then, with support from various industry, government and academic partners, WiCyS has become a continuing effort to recruit, retain and advance women in cybersecurity. It brings together women (students/faculty/researchers/professionals) in cybersecurity from academia, research and industry for sharing of knowledge/experience, networking and mentoring. Beyond the annual conference, WiCyS is a community of engagement, encouragement and support for women in cybersecurity.

The GenCyber program provides summer cybersecurity camp experiences for students and teachers at the K-12 level. The goals of the program are to help all students understand correct and safe on-line behavior, increase diversity and interest in cybersecurity and careers in the cybersecurity workforce of the Nation, and improve teaching methods for delivering cybersecurity content in K-12 computer science curricula.

Our vision is for the GenCyber program to be part of the solution to the Nation's shortfall of skilled cybersecurity professionals. Ensuring that enough young people are inspired to direct their talents in this area is critical to the future of our country's national and economic security as we become even more reliant on cyber-based technology in every aspect of our daily lives.

To ensure a level playing field, GenCyber camps are open to all student and teacher participants at no cost. Funding is provided jointly by the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation.

We are currently making plans to host a GenCyber camp here at CSUSB in early 2018! Our projected dates for the camp are June 18th to June 22nd. We will confirm dates and begin the registration process by February 2018.
