The nationally recognized Cybersecurity Center at Cal State San Bernardino will hold its Open House virtually on Friday, Oct. 23, inviting students, their families, faculty and counselors to learn about the exciting opportunities available in cyber education, scholarships, and career readiness development at CSUSB.
The open house, from 6-8:30 p.m. PT, will highlight the center and cyber club’s accomplishments, vision, and virtual techniques utilized during this adventurous season. Record achievements in outreach will be unveiled by the Cyber Intelligence and Security Organization, as they close the evening with project demonstrations in Ethical Hacking, CCDC, The Purple Team Experience, Web Applications, Red Hat, Incident Response and Network Engineering.
This year’s event will feature special guest speaker Norma M. Krayem, a recognized expert in the field of cybersecurity and data privacy, who serves as vice president at Van Scoyoc Associates, based in Washington, D.C., and as chair of VSA’s Cybersecurity, Privacy & Digital Innovation Practice Group.
“The Cybersecurity Center open house is an excellent opportunity for anyone considering a career in cybersecurity to hear real life experiences on jobs, internships and the cybersecurity initiative here at Cal State San Bernardino,” said Tony Coulson, a professor in the university’s Information and Decision Sciences program and executive director of the CSUSB Cybersecurity Center.
In September, the National Security Agency (NSA) designated Cal State San Bernardino to be a leader of its core workforce development initiative, selecting it for a $10.5 million grant and naming the university’s Cybersecurity Center as the Community National Center for Cybersecurity Education, illustrating CSUSB’s continued prominence as the premier institution of higher education for cybersecurity education.
As the Community National Center for Cybersecurity Education, the CSUSB Cybersecurity Center will establish and manage three Centers of Academic Excellence-C Communities of Practice, coordinate cutting edge research, establish and support five regional hubs around the country, and support cybersecurity education nationally, Coulson said.
