Invite you to a briefing on

 

Building a Culture of Security: Integrating Cyber into

Career and Technical Education

Thursday, July 25

2pm-3pm

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. 

 

Panelists

Dr. Davina Pruitt-Mentle, National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education, NIST

Howard Penrose, Society for Maintenance and Reliability Professionals

Kevin Nolten, Cyber Innovation Center

Kurt John, Siemens USA

Sean Lyngaas, CyberScoop, Moderator
