Proud Champion of the National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) during October.
Cybersecurity Awareness Month @ NSUOctober is the National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) sponsored by DHS. The College of Computing and Engineering (CCE) at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is serving as Champion of the National Cyber-Security Alliance, a Washington DC based organization funded by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and recognized by NSA and DHS as a National Center of Academic Excellence (CAE) in Information Assurance/Cybersecurity Education. Since October 2013, we have been conducting a wonderful annual outreach program called "Cybersecurity Day @ NSU" to promote awareness about some do's and don'ts related to cybersecurity, as well as promote interest in cybersecurity careers at our Davie campus. This event was set in collaboration between NSU, federal law enforcement agencies, industry, Miami-Dade Public Schools, Broward County Public Schools, and NSU's USchool. To learn more about our annual "Cybersecurity Day @ NSU" event, see below. Since 2019, our outreach activities moved to include presentations during the month of October at high-school around South Florida as well as invited cybersecurity professionals on-campus to inspire undergraduate students to pursue cybersecurity careers.
|Additionally, from 2016 - 2017, we have been collaborating with the National Security Agency (NSA) and their partner, LifeJourney, to incorporate the NSA Day of Cyber, which was a free interactive, self-guided, and fully automated cyber education and career awareness experience that runs on the LifeJourney platform within our event (Cybersecurity Day @ NSU). The NSA Day of Cyber was a cloud-based platform that enables students to test-drive cyber careers and live a day in the life of six leading NSA cyber professionals.|
