Cyber Security Summit in Conjunction with the 2002 CIT
Recognizing that colleges, universities, and other organizations across the country are developing and providing degree programs and certifications related to Cyber Security and Information Assurance, the time is right for community colleges to take these efforts to the next level. A consortium of community colleges led by Miami-Dade Community College is hosting a Cyber Security Summit to discuss the development of a nationally-recognized curriculum of certifications and associate degrees in the field of Cyber Security and Information Assurance. These curricula would be based on competencies that meet the needs of stakeholders in business, government, and beyond; focus on two-year or less curricula that lead to jobs in this growing field; and encompass shorter programs for specific aspects of Cyber Security and Information Assurance that build into associate's degrees, all resulting in curricula and certification assessments validated by a nationally-recognized organization. The objective of this summit is to present the initial ideas, receive feedback on the information provided, and develop a plan of action for completing the identified tasks. 

The Cyber Security Summit will be held on Saturday, November 16 from 2:00 to 5:30 p.m. at the Long Beach Convention Center.

There is no charge to participate in the Cyber Security Summit.
