About the Webconference

Despite significant growth in the private and public sector and an earning potential of over $100,000 per year, employers struggle to find enough qualified applicants for open cybersecurity positions. Only experienced IT professionals quality for most cybersecurity roles and educational programs, significantly limiting the pool of career changers and career starters interested in the field.

Recognizing these barriers to entry, the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security are revising the guidelines for the “Center of Excellence” designation currently conferred to close to 200 colleges and universities, requiring each institution to reapply at the end of 2014.

This webconference examines the new “Center of Excellence” regulations and profiles several programs with highly stackable content that appeals to career starters, career changers, and seasoned cybersecurity professionals.
