Kudos to EMU Students Raymond Lilly, Caitlin Gravel, and Bernard Masten who displayed their talents for the governor and walked away with job requests from DHS and State of Michigan.
Today in Ann Arbor, Mich., Gov. Rick Snyder cut the ribbon on a cyber training center called the Michigan Cyber Range — a resource that will prepare cybersecurity professionals in the detection and prevention of cyberattacks in a real-world setting, according to a press release.
The new initiative aims to enhance Michigan’s protection of computer systems and sensitive data by pairing cybersecurity resources – a full curriculum of meetings and workshops, and critical cybersecurity training and awareness tools — with hands-on training opportunities. For instance, students can perform lab exercises and out-of-class work that uses the range’s virtual environment and text, video chat and Web conferencing capabilities. The range helps individuals and organizations develop detection and reaction skills through simulations and exercises.
