Workforce Training for Future Cybersecurity Professionals
The Cyber Security Peer Group is excited to host a virtual Workforce Training for the Future Cybersecurity Professionals panel with a few of Michigan’s leading Cybersecurity Colleges and Universities! The panel will openly discuss topics, such as cybersecurity curriculums, attracting interested students into the cybersecurity programs and improving the pipeline into cybersecurity careers. There will also be an open dialogue, between the attendees, in order to gain a clearer understanding of the needs from hiring managers and how colleges and universities can help to address these needs. Following the event, a Q&A session will be held to allow you to gain answers to your individual questions.

Cyber-attacks have continued to ravage businesses and organizations of all types and sizes, and there are no signs of this trend slowing down. Businesses and organizations within the Capital region must work diligently to stay on top of cybersecurity trends and best practices but keeping up requires vast resources when done independently. Although the Capital region is replete with industry leaders in the cybersecurity field, opportunities for sharing this expertise have been limited. For these reasons, the CAITC Cybersecurity Peer group was established to share relevant cybersecurity trends and best practices with Capital region businesses and organizations.
Cybersecurity Peer Group Leadership:
Board Champion(s) – Deb Fett – Ingham County, Ed Suniga - LCC
Committee Chair – Laura Clark - DTMB
Committee Co-Chair – Sarah Suzuko - TEKsystems
