DSU Cyber Training Center for Cybersecurity Summer 2019
The gap between necessary Cybersecurity skills and the demands placed on Cybersecurity professionals is not only a challenge for the information technology industry, but also a challenge for the scientific research enterprise of the nation. The North Central Region (NCR) Cyber Training Center (CTC) for cybersecurity at Dakota State University is created and funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF OAC 1730105). The goal of CTC is to create a scalable online cyber training program to assist with the development of scientific cyber infrastructure professionals in cybersecurity. The CTC includes three programs, i.e., CyberTraining Students, CyberTraining Faculty, and CyberTraining Professionals.
The CyberTraining Faculty program is offered to post-docs, research scientists, and faculty researchers and educators from 2-year and 4-year colleges in the North Central Region. The program will offer online summer courses to help faculty develop expertise in cybersecurity. The program also includes funds to help participating faculty host cybersecurity workshops on their campuses and develop new courses in cybersecurity. These summer courses are free to all faculty participants! We are now accepting applications participating in CyberTraining Faculty Program for Summer 2019.
