The National K-12 Cybersecurity Education Conference is being hosted October 6-7, 2016 in Arlington, Virginia. The conference is part of an annual series, and is co-hosted by the Internet Keep Safe Coalition (iKeepSafe).
Cybersecurity is one of the leading creators of jobs and opportunity for all economic sectors, with a large and growing demand for cybersecurity positions in both the public and private sector. The National K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference will expand a national effort to address the challenges and opportunities of cybersecurity education, training, and workforce needs of the nation. This two-day event will focus on strategies to inspire cybersecurity career awareness, stimulate career exploration, and enable cybersecurity career preparedness for today’s youth.
The National K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference will feature effective collaboration, bold experiments and innovations, and other potentially game-changing methods in support of bringing together educational leaders from academia, non-profit organizations, and government for two days of presentations, discussions, and focused hands-on workshops. The speakers will include state and local policy leaders, innovative educators, and thought leaders who are impacting national policy around cybersecurity education.
