Join Us for a Series of Cybersecurity Workshops
The Minority Serving – Cyberinfrastructure Consortium (MS-CC) and Internet2, in collaboration with the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC), are organizing a series of five cybersecurity workshops on the campuses of historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and tribal colleges and universities (TCUs). The National Science Foundation is funding the workshops as part of their recent Cyberinfrastructure Center of Excellence Demonstration Pilot award (NSF #2137123).
Our first workshop is slated for June 22-23, 2022, in Greensboro, NC, on the North Carolina A&T State University campus.
More information about the upcoming workshops:
- Chief information officers and their IT and cybersecurity staff from HBCUs and TCUs are encouraged to attend.
- Participants can expect hands-on cybersecurity training; access to open source security tools; and access to documented best practices for campus infrastructure. An agenda will be announced soon.
- The workshops are free to attend but registration is required. Registration information is coming soon!
