2017 Innovations in Cybersecurity Education Awardees Announced!

July 4, 2017

At the 2016 Community College Cyber Summit (3CS) in Pittsburgh, PA, National CyberWatch announced it would be launching a new Innovations in Cybersecurity Education program in the winter of 2016, as part of our Awards & Recognition program.

All National CyberWatch Center members received nomination forms for the Innovations in Cybersecurity Education program. The form requested basic and easy-to-capture information, like program name, people involved in its conception and roll out, reasons for success, and replication potential.  The deadline for application submissions was March 15, 2017. Shortly after, a panel of cybersecurity educators and National CyberWatch Center partners reviewed these submissions, 44 in total (far exceeding our expectations), and selected 5 for recognition.

A reference document was created listing all nominations and a brief write up for each, including the 2017 awardees. You can find an electronic copy HERE.
