The MC-Cyber’s main purpose is dedicated to educating people interested in a career in cybersecurity. As worldwide threats increase from low-level to high-level risks, we need more passionate people to be a part of the work force. Everyone who is interested in joining the MC-Cyber meet-up is welcomed to. No prior experience is required to attend this meet-up.
MC-Cyber will host free informational sessions about the basics of cybersecurity every other week. Within these sessions, we will organize hands-on activities such as, phishing and identifying authentic information, and introduce professionals in the field to give students a glimpse of what a career in cybersecurity is like. We encourage networking, knowledge sharing, and gaining valuable experiences to take the next step towards a new career.
We are stationed at the center of Silver Spring, MD and will be mainly in the Takoma Park area. As part of the Montgomery College Information Technology Institute, MC-Cyber hope to have more students learn to be part of the workforce of the future.
