SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WYSR-TV) — Congressman Katko was in Syracuse on Tuesday, joining educators from schools across Central New York to figure out how to increase the workforce for cybersecurity.
Cybersecurity is a field that’s growing fast and local schools are figuring out how to get kids excited to the demanding industry.
“There’s a lot of students and parents who realize that you don’t need to be super technical to the cybersecurity field. There’s a number of different jobs out there, whether it’s in the legal side, whether it’s writing policy or evening training,” said James Enwright, Cybersecurity Professor at Le Moyne College.
Katko said, “Just trying to build awareness to the opportunities in the field that really needs help right now.”
Le Moyne recently adding a cybersecurity major, joining Syracuse University and Onondaga Community College to help give students the tools they’ll need when it comes to the real world.
