NICE Challenge Project Training Is a Success

In August, in support of their efforts to provide practical K-12 cybersecurity education and workforce development experiences, the Central Florida AFCEA Chapter hosted their Second Annual National Institute for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Challenge Project training event for teachers, partners and AFCEA volunteers in Pinellas, Hillsborough and Manatee counties. While they couldn't host the event at the local TopGolf like they did last year, the virtual training was a success that enabled them to reach a broader audience. Dan Holland, the chapter's cyber outreach chair, hosted Vincent Nestler, the principal investigator of the NICE Challenge Project and associate professor at California State University San Bernardino, and James Ashley, the NICE Challenge Project lead engineer and project manager, for an engaging hour-long demo and Q&A, which was recorded and is available upon request. This event was promoted and distributed to educators across Florida through the chapter's growing partnership with the Florida Center for Cybersecurity and the Florida Center for Instructional Technology, which represents a model for local engagement to address the critical education and workforce gap in cybersecurity.
