Synopsis:

Success in multiple industry sectors or any of the hundreds of new tech-heavy jobs emerging in the modern economy requires a core competency: computational thinking and skills. Computational thinking and skills extend beyond computer programming to include a larger set of knowledge and skills broadly captured by a wide swath of STEM disciplines, including cybersecurity. This webinar will explain why acquiring computational thinking and skills are important for STEM-related careers and how to incorporate and assess computational thinking and skills as part of cybersecurity education and training programs.
