Marshall Cyber Warriors
The need for trained cyber security professionals is growing. The Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) predicts there will be a global shortage of two million cyber security professionals by 2019. The GenCyber Marshall Cyber Warriors project is proposed in order to increase interest of young Americans in cyber security career fields and help students gain an understanding of safe online behavior. The project targets a diverse population of seventh and eighth grade students in Snead State Community College’s local service area. The proposed GenCyber camp curriculum emphasizes the ten cyber security first principles through hands-on activities and active learning modules. The project encompasses 40 hours of instruction in safe online practices in the cyber world and introduces students to the threats associated with today’s computer and information systems. Ten modules based on EC Council’s Certified Secure Computer User (C|SCU) credential will be incorporated into the project to provide students the opportunity to develop fundamental knowledge, concepts, and professional certification in the cyber security profession.
A proposed schedule for the camp has been developed. Tentative dates are June 4-9, 2018.
