With the support of various public and private organizations, the Center conducts activities and events throughout the year. They are:

Summer Cybersecurity Workshop for High School Teachers

As part of a pilot project to create a certification for Cybersecurity Instructors, Kennesaw State University (KSU) will be sponsoring 25 Metro-Atlanta high school teachers with experience in teaching computer-based classes, as part of our Entry Level Certified Cybersecurity Instructors (CCI-E). KSU will covering the costs associated with the instruction and providing meals during the two-day on-site instruction.

The program will consist of an online course (Massive Open Online Course - MOOC) on “Cybersecurity and its 10 Domains”, and continue with an on-site two day workshop where participants will receive additional cybersecurity and security awareness instruction, including how to create, organize and conduct cybersecurity curriculum. Once selected for the program, participants will be expected to complete the first two modules of the MOOC prior to the on-site workshop and the entire MOOC by the end of the summer in order to receive completion certificates, and reimbursement for MOOC registration. Upon completion of the program, participants will be prepared to discuss and teach introductory cybersecurity and security awareness topics, including hands-on computer laboratory exercises. By the end of the year, participants must submit a self-assessment reflection paper indicating how the instruction has improved their ability to teach cybersecurity topics and planned curriculum in cybersecurity at their institution.
