CyberSecurity Internships: The Path to Meeting Industry Need

Time 10/17/17 10:20AM-11:10AM

Room Seacliff A

Session Abstract

Estimates are that there will be close to 1.5 million cybersecurity position openings by 2020. Universities have a unique opportunity to produce individuals with a range of credentials and experiences. Given that many cybersecurity professionals are still home grown, universities have the ability to partner with industry to provide real world experiences to students with financial support from industry. University CSOC's provide a laboratory for extensive learning experiences. This session will describe one university's model for meeting this need, and provide opportunities for the audience to engage in active participation to provide ideas on how to expand on this work. The outcome will be a document that can be utilized at any campus to begin a conversation between IT and academic leadership.
