The College of Computing and Engineering (CCE) hosted a hackathon with Ryder Systems in the CORTEX Labs on the NSU main campus

This past winter semester the College of Computing and Engineering (CCE) hosted a hackathon with Ryder Systems in the CORTEX Labs on the NSU main campus. The winning team was made up of two NSU CCE Computer Science freshmen, Pharoah Campbell and Nicolas Brugger. They were awarded a paid summer internship at Ryder's headquarters in Miami, FL. We were excited about this opportunity, so we visited them on-site to capture more about their experience.

CyberSeek: Hack the gap - Close the cybersecurity talent gap

"Cybersecurity workers protect our most important and private information, from bank accounts to sensitive military communications. However, there is a dangerous shortage of cybersecurity workers in the United States that puts our digital privacy and infrastructure at risk. In 2016 there were 112,000 openings for Information Security Analysts, but only 96,870 workers currently employed in those positions – an annual talent shortfall of over 15,000 workers for cybersecurity’s largest job. There are 200,000 additional openings requesting cybersecurity-related skills, and employers are struggling to find workers who possess them. Jobs requesting cloud security skills, for example, remain open 96 days on average – longer than any other IT skill."
