Cybersecurity and San Jose State university's Role
Led by President Mohammad Qayoumi, San Jose State University is spearheading an interdisciplinary cybersecurity program as a call to action. For the past two years, San Jose State has led an ongoing conversation with the community, government and industry leaders to educate the public, identify needs and vet requirements for a collegiate cybersecurity program. In addition, President Qayoumi was recently appointed by Janet Napolitano to the Homeland Security Academic Advisory Board, providing a national perspective on this rapidly growing workforce development need. As a result, several key objectives for the development of a San Jose State cybersecurity program have been identified. One of these objectives is to host the U.S. Cyber Challenge Northern California Cyber Security Summer Boot Camp for the second year.
Sponsorship & Engagement
Please consider a sponsorship with San Jose State as we build our cybersecurity program in support of Silicon Valley workforce development. Support a Gold or Platinum Sponsorship for broader, long-term engagement.
