On October 20, 2015, Paolina Centonze, Ph.D., led a group of Iona College students majoring in Computer Science with a concentration in Cyber Security for a cyber security awareness presentation to a senior Criminalistics class at Iona Preparatory High School.
This initiative is part of an effort, led by Dr. Centonze, to apply for the National Security Alliance (NSA) Centers of Academic Excellence - Cyber Operations accreditation for the Computer Science programs. Part of this effort is to outreach to the community to encourage the spread of education related to cyber operations, and to participate in activities that contribute to growing and strengthening the cyber operations community.
Dr. Centonze and the students thank Frances Bailie, Ph.D., Katherine B. Reilly and Thomas Straehle for helping organize this successful event!
This project is part of the program in support of the U.S. president's National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) plan, "Building a Digital Nation," and furthers the goal to broaden the pool of skilled workers capable of supporting a cyber-secure nation. Learn more about the NICE plan.
