SecureTheVillage would like to invite you to be part of a paid curriculum development workshop we are coordinating in support of Paula Hodge and the South Central Coast Region Community Colleges.
The objective of the workshop — a regional design discussion called Compression Planning — is to assist faculty develop a model curriculum for cybersecurity workforce pipelines specific to the disciplines of Computer Networking (IT), Business, and Public Safety. We are being asked to share our expertise, help identify gaps, and recommend future needs so as to align academic coursework to industry needs. In return, the Region will be providing participants a $150.00 stipend for their time.
Computer Networking: What basic cloud security and privacy courses should the faculty offer to provide entry-level workers the cloud security / privacy skills and necessary thinking appropriate to their early cybersecurity career? This might extend to secure coding as well.
Business: What basic cybersecurity and privacy courses should the faculty offer to provide business majors and/or entrepreneurs the appropriate skills and necessary thinking to complement their existing courses in Computer Information Systems (CIS), Finance, Business Admin, etc? What do business majors and entrepreneurs need to know about cybersecurity and privacy for their job?
Public Safety: What basic cybersecurity and privacy courses should the faculty offer to provide students the appropriate skills and necessary thinking to complement courses in administration of justice, fire service, law enforcement, emergency medical services, etc? What do these students need to know about cybersecurity and privacy for their job?
Space is limited so please register right away if you’re able to join us.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing pertinent questions and information about joining the meeting.
I hope you can join us on the 16th. It’s an opportunity to help the “supply side” of the workforce connect with the “demand side.” It will also be fun to collaborate.
