Governance, Risk Management, & Compliance Workshop

Monday, September 16, 2019, 08:00am - 05:00pm


CyberWatch West (CWW) and the Center for Systems Security and Information Assurance (CSSIA) are sponsoring a series of workshops for community college faculty for each CAE region.

Small travel stipends are available from CyberWatch West to assist faculty attendees with expenses. Stipends will be awarded soon after the workshop is completed.

Workshop Description:

This workshop is hosted by NSA CAE institutions across the country. The workshop will present a series of twelve exercises focusing on cybersecurity Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC). These materials and the workshop were developed in response to a national need for the cybersecurity technician workforce to be more knowledgeable and involved in the compliance process. The workshops will consist of hands-on labs, auditing activities and group projects. Participants that attend this workshop will be given access to a course shell, assessment items and a short capture the flag toolkit.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is designed for college faculty that teach cybersecurity and information assurance programs who recognize that community college cybersecurity program graduates must be better prepared for the Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) certification exam. Business leaders from across the nation have expressed this need repeatedly. Students performing audits for the PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry - Data Security Standard) compliance are required to have this certificate.
