In 2017, the United States employed nearly 780,000 individuals in cybersecurity-related positions, leaving 350,000 positions unfilled. By 2021, researchers estimate there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs globally.
The critical job shortage is one issue executive leadership from academia, industry and government will address at the 2020 Centers of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity Executive Leadership Forum (ELF). Participants will learn about national initiatives and network with peers to delve into cybersecurity education and workforce development.
The forum is hosted by Moraine Valley Community College in collaboration with Dakota State University and in partnership with the NSA/DHS Centers of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity Program.

The National Cyber Summit is the nation’s most innovative cyber security-technology event, offering unique educational, collaborative and workforce development opportunities for industry visionaries and rising leaders. Our core focus is on two things: accessibility and connectivity.
As we draw closer to the quarter-century mark, the Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education (CISSE) continues to provide the sole forum in which the members of the academic field of cybersecurity gather to present and discuss emerging trends and ideas. Our government and industry partners join us to provide information on cyber issues they deal with on a regular basis. This balance serves to provide input for all our stakeholders to reinforce our shared mission. The 24th annual Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education will be gathering in the beautiful Inner Harbor area of Baltimore, MD, from June 14-17. Presentations and keynote addresses will focus on this year’s theme of privacy issues, policies that enforce technological solutions, and those nasty asymmetric and persistent threats to our infrastructure and systems.
The Day of Cyber team interviewed Bob Duhainy, PhD, Principal Investigator, Core Faculty, School of Management and Technology and Doctor of Information Technology at Walden University. Read the full article.
Dr. Mack Chapman and Dr. Gary Griffith attended the Community College CyberSecurity Summit (3CS) that was held on August 2–4, 2018 at Mount Hood Community College in Portland, Oregon. The 3CS conference is the only national academic conference focused on cybersecurity education at community colleges. This yearly conference is held at different community colleges around the United States to promote Cybersecurity best practices. The outcomes of 3CS leverage community college cybersecurity programs across the nation by introducing the latest technologies, best practices, curricula, products, and more.
Dr. Chapman and Dr. Griffith attended 2018’s 3CS conference to promote Walden University’s, College of Management and Technology, School of Information Systems and Technology’s Cyber Security and Information Assurance programs. The School of Information Systems and Technology’s Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Cyber Security and Forensics program is recognized by the National Security Agency (NSA) as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE-CD). The School of Information Systems and Technology also offers students master’s degrees in cyber security, and in the Doctor of Information Technology program, students can tailor their research into areas of Cyber Security/Information Assurance that is of greatest interest to our students.
We had an Excellent Booth location to meet potential students.
Along with promoting our cyber security programs, we were also working to create articulation agreements with community colleges that would give community college students pathways to further their education in Cyber Security at Walden.
