New Cybersecurity Educational Pathways in Iowa
Iowa State University (ISU) partnered with Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) and The Iowa Cyber Hub to review educational pathways into cybersecurity. The organizations hosted a workshop in June, inviting businesses and educators across the state. The purpose of the workshop was to determine if there is a gap between cybersecurity needs and those who know of basic or advanced cybersecurity concepts. To begin the process of creating these new pathways, the three organizations surveyed several educational institutions and businesses around the state of Iowa to see what types of cybersecurity experts each group needed or produced.
