Cybersecurity Education for Universities

Overview

Collaborating with schools

We established the Cybersecurity Education for Universities program to help address the gap by offering guidance, expertise, and support to college cybersecurity programs free of charge. We work collaboratively with schools, typically focusing on one or more of the following areas:

  • Faculty enablement and training
    “Training the Trainers,” we ensure educators have accurate, useful information that follows best practices as researched by our subject matter experts.
  • Curriculum alignment and course consultation
    Ensuring that subjects remain relevant and accurate, addressing critical concepts in the fast-evolving world of technology and cybercrime.
  • Technical seminars & webinars
    We provide technical seminars and webinars as requested by students and faculty to keep their knowledge up-to-date with the latest discoveries by our experts. We also offer speaking engagements led by Trend’s cybersecurity professionals.

Participants & Partners

We launched a pilot of our Cybersecurity Education for Universities program in the Philippines in 2017 with 3 universities and are excited to continue working with them and our newest participants!

Some of our recent outreach efforts include an expert-led course on the introduction to cybersecurity and training on the “Fundamentals of Malware Awareness” and “Python & Big Data.”

While much of our work with partner universities is aimed at training and curriculum alignment, we also offer expert guest speakers, sponsorships for cybersecurity events, and donation of materials.
