About Student Development:
Led by Co-PI Daniel Manson (Cal Poly Pomona), CyberWatch West's student development activities enable students to gain relevant experience, compete for awards, and network with other students, faculty, and industry professionals. This will be achieved though the creation of new student clubs emphasizing information assurance, student involvement with information assurance professional organizations, student internships in information assurance, and a cyber-defense league for community colleges and high schools in the CyberWatch West region. Dr. Manson will work closely with other Co-PIs to ensure a cohesive and comprehensive approach throughout California and the Pacific Northwest.
CyberWatch West offers several opportunities for High School, 2-Year and 4-Year College Students to complete in cybersecurity. CyberWatch West sponsors three college-level student competitions annually and two high school competitions for high school students to compete.
