NCyTE 2022 Summit

Alexandria, VA
June 26 - 28, 2022

Invitation Only | Registration Required

The National Cybersecurity Training & Education Center (NCyTE) is hosting a two-day summit from June 26 - 28, 2022. Leaders and stakeholders in cybersecurity education will gather to examine the essential role community colleges play in addressing the growing, critical shortage of qualified cybersecurity workers in the U.S.

In 2002, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the American Association of Community Colleges co-sponsored a workshop and resulting report titled, 'Protecting Information: The Role of Community Colleges in Cybersecurity Education.' Nearly 20 years later, cybersecurity education has evolved dramatically – and, along with it, the cybersecurity threats and needs of the nation. Community colleges use innovative outreach initiatives and relevant curriculum programming to reach untapped, diverse, potential new student populations that they traditionally serve. These strategies are a vital component in closing the workforce gap.

Join some of the most influential minds in cybersecurity education to discuss the progress and impacts of community colleges on workforce development that directly supports national and economic security, and contribute to recommendations for the future. This Summit is organized by the National Cybersecurity Training & Education Center (NCyTE) in partnership with the Center for Systems Security & Information assurance (CSSIA) and the National CyberWatch Center.
