  2. Increase and retain female participation and enrollment in STEM.
  3. Provide resources and internship opportunities.
  4. Provide mentoring opportunities with faculty or industry mentors.

Meetings

The group meets monthly during the fall and spring semesters typically on Wednesdays at 3 p.m. We normally meet on the second Wednesday of the month.

For Fall 2020 we will meet virtually via Zoom. Check Blackboard page for more details.

Events

We organize regular events for our organization members and the community. We attend conferences, social/networking gatherings with industry partners and host our own social events. We also sponsor a summer technology camp for high school females that is held at CCBC annually.

Internships/Apprenticeships

Industry partnerships are at the heart of educational collaborations between the CCBC Cybersecurity Institute and regional technology employers. As such, CCBC works closely with employers, associations and government agencies in the creation and development of internship and apprenticeship opportunities for students.

The Cybersecurity Advisory Board – consisting of technology employers in the Greater Baltimore area – serve to guide CCBC in the development of courses directly related to industry standards, including work-related activities that students may find in actual employment.

Tech Club

Formerly known as Cyber Club, the CCBC Tech Club was launched in 2014 with the dedication of the Cybersecurity Institute. Tech Club meetings serve to bring employers and technology students together for periodic sessions to discuss industry trends and employment opportunities in the fields of Cybersecurity, Digital Forensics, Network Technology and Computer Science/Information Technology.

Tech Club meetings are open to all students regardless of major or area of concentration. Announcements about Tech Club meetings are generally posted Blackboard.
