Parabellum: Building the Academic Cyber Degree of the Future

 

Susan Green, Regional Director and Higher Education Specialist, Cyberbit and Frank Martinez, Security Analyst & Cyber Range Trainer, Miami Dade College, joined Sharon Rosenman, VP Marketing, Cyberbit, to discuss the evolving needs of cybersecurity, the deficit of qualified professionals in this particular job market, and building the academic cyber degree of the future.

According to Cybersecurity Ventures, Cybersecurity is a growing job field with an estimated 3.5 million global unfilled security jobs by 2021.
Martinez mentioned there were presently 13,000 open cybersecurity positions in Florida. The issue at hand: Current Cybersecurity Education and Training is not addressing the demands of real-world cybersecurity needs. Green began her presentation by introducing the building blocks of an effective cybersecurity education program. She provided an example of what a Cybersecurity Master’s Program encompassed.

After Green’s presentation, Martinez provided an overview of the evolution of Miami Dade College, and why they opened the most advanced Cybersecurity Range in Florida: The Cybersecurity Center of the Americas. The program’s goals are to produce graduates with the skillset to perform more effectively and become cybersecurity leaders and produce graduates with immediate value to employers. Martinez broke down the 4-year degree program curriculum with Cyber Range as the centerpiece.

The webinar concluded with a brief Q&A session with questions directed at Martinez.
