HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University will host a free professional development
workshop for educators on Saturday, March 12, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for seventh through
12th-grade teachers. Scheduled in the Innovation Hub in Sims Memorial Library, the
summit will cover basic cybersecurity concepts and give an overview of the summer
GenCyber Professional Development Program.
The National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation have provided funding for this CyberSecurity Summit and the GenCyber Professional Development Program, also for educators, to be held in July. Southeastern was one of 32 universities and colleges nationally to be selected as a camp host last year and is the only university in Louisiana to offer it this year.
Computer Science faculty member Bonnie Achee will serve as program director for the GenCyber program with Southeastern faculty teaching camp courses. The event is free, and both in person and virtual attendance options are available.
