In May 2022, the National CyberWatch Center announced the reformulation of the annual Community College Cyber Summit to become one of several symposia within multiple regional and a national Cybersecurity Capabilities and Career Symposia (3CS). The 3CS expansion, eventually to all 10 Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) regions, will provide many more opportunities for attendees by addressing a significant impediment to participation in vital capacity building programs - the cost and time commitment for travel to the conference location.

When: March 31st - April 2nd
