The GenCyber program provides summer cybersecurity camp experiences for students and teachers at the K-12 level. The goals of the GenCyber program are to: Ignite, sustain, and increase awareness of K12 cybersecurity content and cybersecurity postsecondary and career opportunities for participants through year-round engagement; Increase student diversity in cybersecurity college and career readiness pathways at the K-12 level; and Facilitate teacher readiness within a teacher learning community to learn, develop, and deliver cybersecurity content for the K-12 classroom in collaboration with other nationwide initiatives. The GenCyber program strives to be a part of the solution to the Nation’s shortfall of skilled cybersecurity professionals. Ensuring that enough young people are inspired to utilize their talents in cybersecurity is critical to the future of our country’s national and economic security as we become even more reliant on cyber-based technology in every aspect of our daily lives. Registration details to follow.

Previously we’ve discussed the Internet of Things or “IOT” -- a physical network device that exchanges data. IOT devices are proliferating at a dizzying rate, and the cybersecurity community is scrambling to keep up. Organizations like the Center for Reverse Engineering and Assured Microelectronics, or “CREAM Lab,” at Morgan State are doing their part to train the next generation of IoT cybersecurity researchers. In this episode, Shift5 CEO, Josh Lospinoso, invites special guests Dr Kevin Kornegay and Dr Michel Kornegay to discuss IoT cybersecurity, what they’re doing to raise awareness, and how they’re recruiting and training cybersecurity talent to address IoT cybersecurity issues.
