Colorado Technical University (CTU) was pleased to sponsor and participate in the Western Cyber Exchange (WCX) Cybersecurity Awareness and Training Seminar held in Colorado Springs, CO, October 26 - 27, 2011.

The Western Cyber Exchange (WCX) is a non-profit, grassroots effort to integrate local and national cybersecurity needs and initiatives. As a demonstration of this local integration and community support, the WCX has secured a valuable separate track that will provide Cellebrite UFED Logical Certification training and certification testing. The WCX coordinated with law enforcement and local military to deliver this benefit to the community. CTU is a charter member of WCX.

The event brought together industry, academia, government and military to highlight integration of national cybersecurity initiatives with local and regional efforts. It featured two days of information covering a variety of emerging cybersecurity topics: mobile device security, SCADA and Smart Grid, Security Education and mission assurance of tenant military commands in Colorado Springs.

Robert Lally, CTU’s Director for Homeland Security degree programs, presented on the role of real-world, industry-current Homeland Security degree programs.
