Cybersecurity Committee

The Office of Grants Development has created a Cybersecurity Committee to position the College for various grants that may become available in the next few years in this area.  Some of the issues we might want to work on include: what are our capacities; what are our strengths and how could we build on these; who are our partners; what are our capabilities of offering courses to international audiences; and what is our vision in the Cybersecurity area?  We would love to hear your input.  What do you think?  Please add a post.

The next deadline for this  grant program, offered three times per year, is October 15 for activities taking place during the 2014  Spring Semester. Pending review by the Office of  Grants Development, faculty may apply individually or collaboratively for time and expenses. Maxi-  mum funding for time is eight credits @ $750 per  credit. Faculty may also apply to VCCS for a workshop mini grant, a maximum of $1,500, to hold day  conferences or workshops in conjunction with one  other college.
