Educators and Employers Talk Tech Security at KC NICE Conference

There’s a reason Google chose to make Kansas City the first gigabit city. We are proudly part of the Silicon Prairie – big tech companies are headquartered here, and big thinkers make mind-blowing innovations happen daily.

But with all that technology, there’s an increasing need for security – and cybersecurity education. As a matter of fact, the demand for cybersecurity professionals is expected to grow 53% by 2018, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That demand will be directly addressed in the upcoming National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) conference and expo, which will be hosted next month right here in Kansas City.

I was recently contacted by a NICE representative, asking if I would help spread the word about the conference. In addition to adding the conference to our event calendar, I thought a full post was in order. Read on to learn about the vast variety of cybersecurity education programs NICE offers, and how they’re helping form a framework to empower the future of our country’s security network – including scholarships and student programs!
