Erik Fretheim

I am excited for the opportunity to be a candidate for re-election to the Colloquium board. CISSE is a very different organization that has done a great job of focusing specifically on the needs of education and not become a generalist security conference. It is, and needs to remain, a valuable tool for security educators, both new and experienced, to meet, to see, experience, and determine the direction in security education. I have been a part of the process for many years, including helping to organize the 2004 conference, and working as the poster chair, chairing the 2020 program, and as a volunteer for the last several years. I would work to continue to keep the focus on serving the needs of educators while keeping them in touch with industry and government and keep the atmosphere of the conference where we are all meeting people who are interested in the same area and in collaborating to further cyber security education. It is also important to look to and further develop education needs in specific areas, such as Privacy, and to push boundaries of cyber security as a multi-disciplinary field, not as an offshoot of one academic discipline or another. I am the Director for Cybersecurity Programs and Co-Director of the Internet Studies Center Initiative for Cyber Security and Privacy at Western Washington University. WWU offers Cybersecurity programs at our main campus in Bellingham and in Poulsbo where we host the Poulsbo CyberRange – the Washington State Educational Cyber Range.

My current work as Treasurer has allowed me to work with the leadership to stabilize and grow the organization’s reserve, minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our cancelled 2020 conference and work as a member of the editorial board modernizing and expanding the publication of the CISSE journal. In 2020 and 2021 if elected I will continue to work to increase services and benefits to the members, facilitate the use of virtual technology to increase CISSE’s visibility and importance for security educators in preparation of our 2021 twenty-fifth celebration. Upon retirement in 2019 from Regis I have remained act in the cybersecurity field as a member of a Regis sponsored technology transfer working group, continued research in my area of interest; the relationship of team member and leadership behavior during incident response to cyber threats as derived from metrics obtained during cyber competitions, development of applied software tools to quicken incident response under operating conditions and development of technology transfer frameworks for small colleges and universities.

I make time to regularly publish on topics such as deescalating cyber conflict, supporting cyber competitions, and improving the efficacy of joint training exercise between local governments and National Guard cyber defense teams. Sharing a bit of my background, am the president of a non-profit devoted to improving societal reasoning. I’ve been an assistant professor of fine arts and have traveled to over 50 countries.

The Colloquium recognizes that the protection of information and infrastructures that are used to create, store, process, and communicate information is vital to business continuity and security. The Colloquium's goal is to work together to define current and emerging requirements for information assurance education and to influence and encourage the development and expansion of information assurance curricula, especially at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
