Cybersecurity continues to be a leading creator of jobs and opportunity across both the public and private sectors. With a talent pool of cybersecurity workers that is not yet able to keep up, there is great opportunity to encourage students to pursue an exciting career through cybersecurity education for all.
The NICE K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference, hosted by iKeepSafe at the Omni Nashville Hotel, will feature timely and thought-provoking presentations that highlight effective collaborations, bold experiments and innovations, and other potentially game-changing methods in support of bringing together cybersecurity workforce, training, and educational leaders from academia, business, and government for two days of focused hands-on workshop and discussion in support of the NICE strategic goals: accelerating learning and skills development, nurturing a diverse learning community, and guiding career development and workforce planning.
The conference will feature five tracks:
1. Increasing cybersecurity career awareness
2. Infusing cybersecurity across the education portfolio
3. Integrating innovative educational approaches
4. Designing academic and career pathways
5. Promoting digital literacy
