On September 27-29, Trusted CI participated in SFSCon 2019, the third annual cybersecurity training and professional development event at Cal Poly Pomona (CPP) for the CyberCorps Scholarship for Service (SFS) students and alumni nationwide. 105 student attendees traveled to California from 42 universities across the country for this event organized by CPP Professor Mohammad Husain. In 2017, Trusted CI helped organize the CPP-CTSC SFS Cyberinfrastructure Security Workshop, the first event in this SFSCon series.

This year, Trusted CI's Barton P. Miller and Elisa Heymann provided a Software Assurance training for the students, and Trusted CI's Jim Basney and John Zage provided an Identity and Access Management training. Ishan Abhinit and Zalak Shah (CACR) also provided a Security Log Analysis training, using training materials developed by Trusted CI.

From 45 student attendees in 2017 to 105 student attendees in 2019, SFSCon is a growing success. It’s great to see the SFS program supporting the development of the next generation cybersecurity workforce. Trusted CI is proud to have the Cal Poly Pomona Scholarship for Service project as one of our partners.
