Cybersecurity training attracts teachers from across the country to JMU


 

High school teachers from 15 states, including Virginia, will learn first-hand about cybersecurity technology and designing curricula to train their students about cybersecurity June 15-19 at James Madison University.

The teachers will be participating in a GenCyber bootcamp funded by the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation.
