Norwich University To Host Cyber-Security Seminar

Communities / Sep. 7, 2017 9:06am EDT

Norwich University will be this year’s host of the Reserve Officers’ Association (ROA) Department of Europe and the Verband der Reservisten der Bunderwehr (VdRBw) Partnership Seminar.

Approximately 30 officers from these two organizations along with other invited Reservists will convene on the Northfield campus to discuss the pressing topic of cybersecurity September 7-9.

This is the 25th annual partnership seminar and the first time it has been hosted outside of Europe. Two Norwich alumni will give presentations on cybersecurity and national security.

The seminar was conceived to provide the two reserve organizations an opportunity to share relevant defense topics and vital dialogues in English that foster the mutual interests of Germany and the U.S.. Another essential part of the concept was to allure active reservists from both organizations together to advance an academic awareness and personal relations with leaders and experts in their national defense structures and NATO.

Ranked #2 by the Ponemon Institute for cybersecurity in the U.S., NU’s programs are consistently ranked among the best in the nation for cybersecurity education.

Norwich recently announced it has officially partnered with the United States Army Reserves (USAR) to develop cyber-education curricula that align with federal standards and cybersecurity needs.

In April 2017, Norwich was named a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE) by the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security through 2022. Also, the Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3) certified Norwich as a National Center for Digital Forensic Academic Excellence (CDFAE).
