New College Institute (NCI), with generous support from the New College Foundation, and in partnership with the Vinod Chachra IMPACT Lab at Radford University, is providing eight full scholarships for an upcoming cohort of the Lab’s 3-credit, online, and self-paced course in Foundations of Cybersecurity to eligible organizations, businesses, and individuals within the following counties and incorporated areas: Henry, Patrick, Franklin, Pittsylvania, and Martinsville.
The IMPACT Lab’s 3-credit hour Foundations of Cybersecurity is a great course for IT professionals who need a strong foundation on how to protect an organization’s infrastructure or for CTE teachers who will be teaching basic to intermediate cybersecurity courses. This course is also designed for professionals whose responsibilities might include keeping data and networks secure and who are seeking a fundamental understanding of the threats, attacks, and vulnerabilities that exist and how to mitigate those risks. Optimally, an IT background would be helpful, but it is not necessary if the learner has a basic knowledge and understanding of terms and concepts in IT. An overview of the course content is provided below for your reference.
The eight scholarship seats will be provided on a first come, first-served basis to qualifying businesses, individuals, and/or organizations.
