Prior Classes taught
Cyber Security Seminar (Georgetown UNXD-437)
This was a required course for CyberCorps™ scholarship recipients as well as any other interested individuals (with permission of the instructor).
Meeting bi-weekly, this combination academic and community-building course provides students with an understanding of topics such as: the requirements of individuals who want security clearances; Federal cybersecurity regulations and standards, such as FISMA; the respective roles of DHS and NSA when it comes to securing government and civilian networks; and the policy controls and best practices to protect networks and systems. This course builds community between graduate and undergraduate students across the CS, SSP, MSFS, JD/LLM, and MCSR programs.
The seminar course has a mix of invited speakers from government, FFRDCs, industry, academia, and civil society as well as presentations by the students. We benefit by having alumnae/i nearby, who come to campus (or virtual) on a regular basis to describe their experience at government agencies. Some class meetings may occur in the field, such as at Congressional offices, Executive offices, select agencies (such as DHS, NSA, NGA, DISA), and partner campuses of other local universities. This provides students with networking opportunities and the opportunity to work on their professional communication skills and hone presentation skills to government officials.
