Today’s Training For Tomorrow’s Cybersecurity Jobs
The Colonial Pipeline hacking is only one of many recent - and ongoing - challenges in cybersecurity.
Here on our campus - the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga - there is now a Cybersecurity Training program through the College of Engineering and Computer Science.
UTC is one of four universities involved in this project, funded by the NSA.
It is designed to prepare students for jobs that are in demand across the country - now and for decades to come.
Earlier this year, Steve Reiter joined UTC as Project Coordinator for the program.
I spoke with him - and John Freeze, director of UTC’s Center for Professional Education.
