Sending Office: Honorable James R. Langevin
The Congressional Career and Technical Education Caucus and
The Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus
Invite you to a briefing on
Building a Culture of Security: Integrating Cyber into
Career and Technical Education
Thursday, July 25
Cannon Building Room 122
In critical infrastructure sectors – whether it’s telecommunications, agriculture or healthcare – a workforce with basic cybersecurity skills is essential to our public safety. As critical infrastructure systems have become increasingly Internet-enabled,
or “smart,” malicious cyber actors have targeted them, often with serious consequences.
All critical infrastructure workers, from skilled tradespeople to health technicians and advanced manufacturers, must understand their roles in keeping our systems secure; however, the career and technical education (CTE)
programs that train them rarely incorporate any cybersecurity education. We invite you to join the Congressional CTE and Cybersecurity Caucuses for an expert discussion on the importance of integrating cybersecurity education in CTE programs for operators
of cyber physical systems.
