Community colleges continue to play a pivotal role in preparing future cybersecurity professionals, although internal and external factors bring about challenges for administrators and faculty in such activities as: the creation of curricula, acquisition of appropriate lab facilities, maintaining and establishing new articulation, taking advantage of outreach opportunities, and following standards by accrediting bodies. This informal discussion provides community college administrators and faculty and opportunity to discuss what's working and what’s not at their own institution. Participants will be able to take the content of this session and immediately convert it into workable solutions.
