NCyTE Center and the Center for Systems Security and Information Assurance (CSSIA) are presenting a series of workshops for community college faculty for each CAE region.
"Seven 1-day workshops will be hosted by NSA CAE institutions across the country throughout 2019," explains John Sands, PI at the Center for Systems Security and Information Assurance (CSSIA). These workshops present a series of twelve exercises focusing on cybersecurity Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) and incorporate hands-on labs, auditing activities and group projects into the 8-hour sessions. Participants are given access to a course shell, assessment items and a short capture the flag toolkit.
These materials and the workshop were developed in response to a national need for the cybersecurity technician workforce to be more knowledgeable and involved in the compliance process.
Who Should Attend
This workshop is designed for college faculty that teach cybersecurity and information assurance programs who recognize that community college cybersecurity program graduates must be better prepared for the Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) certification exam. Business leaders from across the nation have expressed this need repeatedly. Students performing audits for the PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry - Data Security Standard) compliance are required to have this certificate.
