Cybersecurity Initiative for Capacity Building

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What is this project about?

Answer: The project is based on a partnership between the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), and the Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC). By bringing in scholars from multiple disciplines, this project proposes to explore unique ways to engage students in inter-disciplinary cybersecurity education, to sustain long-term research and education partnerships and to motivate students towards protection of cyberspace. The main goal of this capacity building program is to develop the next generation of scientists and professionals who will have a solid grasp on the interplay between multiple disciplines in cybersecurity such as Computer Science, Political Science, Psychology, Information Systems, Business, Public Policy and Justice. The project will develop professionals who will be able to integrate technical, legal, psychological, political and financial aspects of cybersecurity into practical, secure and dependable cyberspace implementation.

 

Question: Who can participate?
