OKLAHOMA CITY CHAPTER CHAPTER - Mar 10, 2010

Higher Education Available in Cybersecurity

The March chapter luncheon featured guest speaker Albert Heitkamper, professor of computer science/cybersecurity at Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC). Heitkamper discussed OCCC's cyber/information security degree offerings and provided an overview of the Cyber Security Education Consortium (CSEC). Cybersecurity courses lead to either an associate's degree or certificate of mastery in cyber/information security, the professor emphasized, and they are a stepping-stone to careers in the cybersecurity field. OCCC partners with 28 programs in eight states in the CSEC to further cybersecurity education. According to Heitkamper, the CSEC received $7 million in grants from the National Science Foundation to develop and improve the cybersecurity program and enhance work force development. The OCCC program also is at the forefront of digital forensics, which has received a lot of interest recently in support of law enforcement and court systems.
