Skill Up to Scale Up: Cybersecurity Regional Education Alliances for Developing Young Professionals (Cyber-READY Professionals) Consortium


Presenters: 

David H. Tobey

Executive Director and Principal Investigator

National CyberWatch Center


Terrance Campbell

Co-Principal Investigator

YOUR Center and Tennessee State University


What are we proposing to do?

The Cyber-READY Professionals Consortium will create a network of work-based learning sites centered at community colleges in partnership with industry and regional universities. The Cyber-READY program will enroll cybersecurity students in a cloud-based co-curricular instructional system that continually assesses conative readiness and improves cognitive readiness to succeed. A virtual mentor (CRC) will be assigned to each student to collaborate with their faculty instructors to raise success rates of cybersecurity students in institutions primarily dedicated to populations underrepresented in the cybersecurity profession. The CRC will apply formative assessments to construct individual development plans and coaching services needed to prepare students for one of several career pathways.

How to learn more?

Join us for an information session about an opportunity to participate in one or more grant proposals to federal agencies supporting the Skill Up to Scale Up program operated by the National CyberWatch Center. This session will present and answer questions about the Cyber-READY Professionals Consortium that seeks to increase the readiness of underrepresented populations to succeed in developing cybersecurity skills and entering a cybersecurity career pathway.
