Dr. John Sands

Department Chair and Director, CSSIA, Moraine Valley Community College

This workshop is hosted in partnership with CyberWatch West (CWW) and the Center for Systems Security and Information Assurance (CSSIA). It will cover 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 who attend this workshop will be given access to a course shell, assessment items and a short capture the flag toolkit.

This workshop is designed for faculty who teach cybersecurity and information assurance programs and want to prepare cybersecurity program graduates 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.

Faculty who complete this workshop are eligible to receive an additional $200 stipend.
