3rd Annual Cybersecurity Education Symposium

October 13, 2021

Engage and collaborate with fellow Ohio Cybersecurity educators, experts, and leaders. Take part in discussions, gain access to resources, and learn from industry leaders. The 3rd Annual Cybersecurity Education Symposium will take place in a virtual setting on October 13, 2021. Register Today to receive schedule information via email, as well as information on how to join the virtual event.

Bootcamps were offered and available to unemployed and underemployed Ohioans for free through Ohio’s IMAP program. There were also offered for free or at a discount to community members through OCRI funding, and employers leveraged multiple grant funds and Ohio’s TechCred program to receive incumbent worker training. The ability to join a bootcamp at no charge allows adults from any background to test whether or not they have interest in the field. They have access to industry mentors and advisors, university faculty, and university students and also have flexibility in completing coursework through an asynchronous online model.  

Effective cyber defense needs not only training, but validation of that training and an analysis of gaps to customize future training. Cyber exercises are critical at all levels through introductory exposure capture the flags (CTF) to advanced incident response multiple day simulations. CTFs provide opportunities to develop interest in and an understanding of cybersecurity through gamification. Industry and government can also test their readiness through advanced exercises that simulate real world events in Tabletop Exercises (TTX) and live action incident response red on blue exercises.

Cybersecurity Awareness 8-Week Course

Begins April 26, 2021

Cybersecurity news is making headlines about cyberattacks that affect businesses and governments and assume it’s a problem for IT or law enforcement. Cybersecurity is an issue that affects everyone and with just a little bit of awareness, an everyday cybercitizen can make a big difference. This course will examine the current cybersecurity landscape and introduce you to common threats that you may encounter. Each week we will look at a different topic and discuss how it affects you and learn steps to take to become secure in your digital life.

Free for those with an OLLI Membership.
