Finding Headlines from Which to Rip
With new technologies and new threats emerging constantly, our students deserve to be engaged with the latest cybersecurity challenges. “Ripped from the headlines” material is an alternative to textbooks that are static and dated in the midst of rapidly changing events. Students are routinely provided recent information (with as little as 24 hours’ delay) from trusted sources to analyze relative to the topics being studied. They might examine MS-ISAC advisories, explore NIST and MITRE databases, and search for background information beyond news reporting. In this session you will explore recent news items that can be related to key concepts and professional concerns, using example worksheets and other guidance. Additionally, this session will share some approaches recently used in my classroom and exchange ideas on other possibilities. The experience should equip participants to be on the lookout for teachable examples as they arise throughout the school year.

Using Case Study (Cambridge Analytica) to Teach Cybersecurity Hygiene
Since a case study is a problem-based approach to support contextual learning, this workshop uses it to explore the Cambridge Analytica scandal regarding harvesting of Facebook data.  The workshop allows participants to discover how to gather and analyze social media data (e.g., Twitter) as well as identify why someone would want to do that. Participants use a data mining web-based tool to conduct social media data analytics (search, analyze, and visualize social media data). This involves searching to identify social network of people with similar interests, extracting keywords to find topic trends (e.g., word map, name map), and conducting pattern analysis to identify sentiment (e.g., joy, anger, frustration).  During the workshop, participants experience how social media data can be exploited and identify what they can do to enhance their own data privacy!

Letting Off STEAM in K-12 Cybersecurity
The importance of incorporating cybersecurity education in K-12 to develop and strengthen the pipeline of students who pursue a cybersecurity major in college as well as to raise the cyber awareness of all students cannot be overstated. The Pathways in Cybersecurity project at Radford University (PICSAR) is an NSA funded effort to enhance cybersecurity education through the expansion of graduate cybersecurity educational opportunities for K-12 teachers and the development of integrated cybersecurity STEAM lesson plans at all grade levels K through 12.  The PICSAR project involves a coordinated team of higher education faculty, K-12 consultants, and 18 teachers from all grade levels of the Radford City Public Schools.

Workshop participants will work directly with PICSAR project faculty and staff in order to:
•       hear from K-12 faculty about their experiences learning cybersecurity and developing age appropriate lesson plans
•       review some of the lesson plans that have already been created
•       review and critique the PICSAR lesson plan template
•       examine and critique the vertical integration plan for cybersecurity topics
•       work with PICSAR project faculty and staff to brainstorm ideas and develop additional lesson plans
•       hear from PICSAR project staff about mapping cybersecurity curriculum to frameworks such as NIST (https://www.nist.gov/cyberframework)

Justifying and Executing STEM on the cheap
STEM education is a hot topic that attracts a lot of attention, consternation, budget requests as well as dilemmas, challenges and sometimes misconceptions. Leadership often throws resources at lack of STEM and says, "Just Do It." Easier said than done. This session is targeted not just at Cybersecurity educators, but at any would-be STEM educator or advocates. This session will address some common myths about STEM education, touch on what it is (or should be) as well as what it isn't (or should not be). The session then gets into some industry perspective of the importance of STEM-rich education (regardless of the industry the student is approaching), and finally arms would-be STEM educators with some free/near-free resources they can use to both justify and mobilize their institution into delivering more hands-on STEM experiences for their own student populations.

Nearly perfect bad passwords: overcoming humanity through research
In this session, you'll learn basic password lingo, see real-world examples, and start your journey into better passwords, give better advice to others on how to make and remember passwords, and see what we did at Virginia Tech to move from cryptic passwords to simpler passphrases.

Humans create terrible passwords and most of what you think you know about passwords is probably wrong. Participate in the bad password game, learn what really matters, what doesn't matter at all, and some tricks to making less hackable passwords. Over a year of user experience research resulted in learning how people formulate passwords, why they are so bad, and that human beings don't follow password advice. Learn what we learned and laugh at the psychology of how most of us really work.

Infusing Cybersecurity in Two-Year Programs: ACM Curriculum Guidelines and Other Efforts
In early 2018, the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) endorsed their first curricular volume for Cybersecurity designed for four-year institutions referred to as CSEC2017.  The ACM Committee for Computing Education in Community Colleges (CCECC) has now formed a task force to create a similar cybersecurity curriculum guidance for two-year programs. This ACM CCECC work follows two years of intense computer science curriculum development which resulted in the ACM Computer Science Curricular Guidance for Associate-Degree Transfer Programs with Infused Cybersecurity, known as CSTransfer2017.  

This proposed presentation will
  • review the ACM CSTransfer2017 curricular guidance and its infused cybersecurity,
  • review the current work toward two-year cybersecurity curricular guidance to be known as CSEC2Y,
  • review additional existing work to infuse cybersecurity into computer science programs across the U.S.,
  • review some of the cybersecurity initiatives happening throughout Virginia, such as creation of cyber science programs and additional minors in cybersecurity under computer science degrees, increased number of hackathons, increased focus on secure coding, and
  • offer resources for infusing cybersecurity in computing programs.

Diversity in Cybersecurity: How Educators Can Change the Future Face of Security
During the next five years, cyber crime will become the greatest threat to every person, place and thing in the world. Gartner predicts that by 2021, we will have suffered the first human death as a result of a cybersecurity breach. Currently, the cybersecurity unemployment rate has dropped to zero percent and the number of unfilled cybersecurity jobs is predicted to reach 3.5 million by 2021. With all of this opportunity, there is still a significant shortage of women and minorities in the industry; however, educators have an opportunity to change the face of cybersecurity. This session will talk about real-world challenges faced as well as opportunities and strategies that can engage and educate diverse student populations for careers in cybersecurity.

Big Data Analytics is the new Tsunami wave that will sweep security threats right off their game!
Big Data Analytics technology is the rad new kid on the block and everyone wants a piece of the action!  But, how can this be applied to the organization’s security posture? Organizations have historically been the driving factor for many cutting security technologies using manual configurations, repetitive procedures, security information and event management, automation and orchestration, pushing the limits of existing security capabilities.  Organizations are familiar with how to harness the power of many of the security technologies, yet struggle to keep pace with the bad guys. We need a firm understanding of what options are available to leverage Big Data Analytics for security.  Once understood, we'll need to answer questions such as "What is the role of Big Data Analytics in security?" and "How can Big Data Analytics help organizations be in the ‘command and control’ seat for their own security journey?" We will explore these topics and questions as we focus on the building blocks that can realize an improved security that organization can achieve through Big Data Analytics.

Energizing Student Resumes With Non-Traditional Approaches
As John Holt said - "Learning is not the product of teaching. Learning is the product of the activity of learners."

This session will focus on five primary ways to better prepare our students outside the classroom:
(1) participation in individual and team competitions,
(2) summer internships,
(3) real course projects,
(4) clubs, and
(5) community service.

These focus areas are not new to educators. It is often common to do one or two of them, but combining all of them has shown positive results in the Cybersecurity and Computer Science programs at LFCC. Hear first-hand from students, faculty, and business partners on how learning outside the classroom brings life to lectures and skills on the resume. The approach taken can be used for any discipline, it only takes an educator with passion and dedication to go beyond automated grading and textbook homework problems.

Participants at this sessions will take away an approach that could be used in any discipline and resources to help participants get started. Presentation will be available online for reference after conference. Handouts about setting up partnerships for internships, examples of community outreach, instructions on how to become part of the Virginia Cyber Range, and how to start competition teams or club.

Why Some Technical Millennial Job Seekers Fail to Secure Jobs in Cybersecurity?
According to CyberSeek, a federally funded cybersecurity jobs heat map, there are 285,681 job openings (http://www.cyberseek.org). With such a critical shortage of cybersecurity professionals, there are entry-level failures that prevent millennials from getting jobs in the cyber security industry. What are some of these failures and how can they be avoided? This interactive presentation takes the pulse of participants by having them work in teams and share insights on what are some of these failures (aka weaknesses, negative features) happen. The teams’ discuss, prioritize, and visualize their results. For example, teams will identify and rank several failures that students may exhibit during interviews for entry-level cybersecurity positions.

Hands-on Learning vs. Lecturing: A Student's Perspective
The dynamic and ever-changing nature of the cyber security field makes it intellectually challenging. It’s fascinating that an individual may learn something today that becomes completely obsolete tomorrow. Consequently, making the leap from learning in the classroom to working in the field remains one of the biggest challenges for students. The problem is students are not getting enough hands-on learning in the classroom. As any cyber security professional can attest, getting a cyber education with no hands-on experience is like learning how to read sheet music without learning how to actually play the notes on an instrument. One cannot become a musician by simply understanding how to read sheet music. The fact is, certain skills can only be acquired through experimental learning. Transforming cyber education requires educators to utilize active learning strategies that get students engaged with course material either individually or in groups, especially with more advanced cyber security concepts. This presentation will provide insight into the student experience with hands-on learning in the classroom, both to apply what is learned passively and to acquire new knowledge. Examples of some effective and some ineffective strategies will be examined.

Gamification, AI and the Cyber Workforce Gap
The cyber workforce (WF) shortage demands creative ways to attract, accelerate and maintain cyber skills development. And recent studies* make a strong argument for how gamification, applying rules, engaging teams, and scoring have become a staple for effective methods of educating, training and assessing our current and coming cyber WF...

In this interactive conversation on cyber ranges, gamified training, hands-on learning, and knowledge retention, we look forward to discussing current and future case studies along two main threads:
  1. It starts with awareness. How do you make awareness training compelling and provide better, more measurable results? Some of it comes down to an approach to learning, education and training (big fans of gamification here!). 
  2. We cannot solve this problem alone. As compute power becomes more accessible and affordable, and successful cyber breaches become more profitable, we won’t win this fight alone. The use of AI/ML has been introduced to the cyber-scene, and has incredible potential to both augment and automate the work and training/ education of cyber professionals.

* A MacAfee, April 2018 report titled, “Winning the Game,” surveyed almost 1000 cybersecurity managers/ professionals along with 500 employees, focusing on current threats, challenges, and investments needed. The survey found 40% of organizations already hold some kind of gamification exercise at least once per year. 77% of senior managers said their organization’s cybersecurity would be much safer if they implemented more gamification.
