Cybersecurity Training Camp at Jacksonville State University


Twenty-five area middle school and high school teachers participate in a Summer Cybersecurity Training Camp at Jacksonville State University. The new camp is training teachers in Digital Forensics, Cryptography, Cyber Security Risk Management, and a host of other cybersecurity topics. JSU Center for Information Security and Assurance Director Dr. Guillermo Francia III says it’s a weeklong teacher workshop. Participants were selected based on an application process, which included a letter of recommendation from their principal and an essay describing how they could benefit from the program and how they plan to implement knowledge gained into their classrooms.The camp is funded by a $98-thousand GenCyber grant from the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation. A waiting list has been started for 2017, in hopes that the funding will be renewed.
