Cybersecurity Curriculum Design and Content
Workshop Description Cybersecurity curriculum development is very diffused across the educational system with very little consistency in the structure of curricular content or design of instructional delivery. The federal government is partnering with the private sector and academia to develop interdisciplinary cybersecurity curriculum guidance that addresses the need for widely accepted and shareable cybersecurity curricula that incorporate employers’ cybersecurity needs. This seminar will provide perspectives on what to include as cybersecurity content, curricular models for maximizing student Learning outcomes, and instructional design techniques proven to engage learners in the classroom as well as online.
Key Learning Objectives
  1. Participants will identify resources for cybersecurity curriculum content as appropriate for their particular institution
  2. Participants will identify and utilize key elements of course design and development
  3. Participants will implement different approaches and techniques for creating engaging learning environments and experiences
Workshop Lead(s) Vincent Nestler, Ph.D. California State University, San Bernardino
Encouraging Cybersecurity Career Discover via Career Assessment Tools
Workshop Description Is it possible to increase youth and mid-career professional interest and exploration of cybersecurity careers by better design and use of career assessment and career interest tools? What approaches work best with elementary and high school children and in particular, girls and people from under-represented populations? This workshop will allow practitioners to share best practices and explore existing tools while identifying gaps and opportunities for improvements.
Key Learning Objectives
  1. Attendees will contribute to and leave with awareness of the landscape of existing tools to help people learn about a wide variety of careers, including cybersecurity and technology roles; and related areas of interest
  2. Attendees will identify gaps in the landscape with a potential towards recommending the creation of new tools
  3. Attendees will gain an understanding of how they can use career assessment tools to help diversify the cybersecurity participant community
Workshop Lead(s) Chris Mackey CPP Innovation Labs Jennifer Carlson WTIA Workforce Institute and Apprenti David Tobey, Ph.D. National CyberWatch Center
Cybersecurity Education and Training in the Internet of Things Era
Workshop Description Cyberspace is expanding fast with the introduction of new Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. Billions of newly Internet-connected devices and IoT promise enhanced business efficiencies and increased customer satisfaction. Nonetheless, the burgeoning IoT technologies pose more threats to security and privacy than ever before. As the area is new and dynamically evolving, education and training must address challenges to better prepare the cybersecurity workforce. This seminar will provide an overview of the IoT threat landscap; introduce existing mechanisms for education in IoT security; and explore methods to integrate IoT into training programs and curricula in academic and industry settings for the current and future cybersecurity workforce.
Key Learning Objectives
  1. Attendees will gain an understanding of IoT security concepts and the criticality of preparing a workforce enabled with knowledge and skills to address IoT security concerns
  2. Attendees will learn how education and training should be approached with IoT in mind
  3. Attendees will explore innovative methods to enable ongoing learning as technologies change
Workshop Lead(s) Katerina Megas National Institute of Standards and Technology Selcuk Uluagac, Ph.D Florida International University
International Perspectives on Cybersecurity Workforce Development
Workshop Description International collaboration in cybersecurity education and workforce development is a powerful way for countries to make a positive shift in the global shortage of cybersecurity workers. While there may be differences in approaches and organizational structures, there is a shared need to learn from each other and implement best practices that make sense given a country’s individual culture, educational and training system, and government leadership. This session takes stock of initiatives underway in Australia, Canada, and the United States to adopt the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework to standardize the nomenclature, ensure consistency in skills development, and facilitate international mobility of the cybersecurity workforce.
Key Learning Objectives
  1. Understand the usefulness of the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework to standardize the nomenclature, ensure consistency in skills development, and facilitate international mobility of the cybersecurity workforce
  2. Learn about initiatives underway in Australia, Canada, and the United States
  3. Articulate the need for international collaboration in cybersecurity workforce development
  4. Explore practical initiatives that our governments, industry, and academic institutions can be doing to further advance international collaboration in cybersecurity workforce development
