Just recently, our staff was made aware of a program offering free cyber security related training and awareness courses. These courses are funded by DHS/FEMA in cooperation with the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX).
The objective of this DHS/FEMA partnering is to ensure that cyber space is supported by secure and resilient infrastructure(s) —delivering open communications, information and prosperity while protecting privacy and confidentiality.
These courses are offered at no cost and students can earn a TEEX certification of completion and Continuing Education Units (CEU) for the completion of each course.
This TEEX Cyber Security Training program helps to build cyber resiliency for individuals, critical infrastructure, communities, and the Nation.
The DHS/FEMA certified cyber security training offered by TEEX also helps to ensure that the privacy, reliability and integrity of the information systems that power our global economy will remain intact and secure.
These courses — both online and instructor-led — have been evaluated and recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE) for college credit at the completion of each track.
Currently, the following tracks being offered are:
- General / Non-Technical Track — Introducing the basic principles and practices computer users need to keep themselves safe at work and at home.
- Technical / IT Professional Track – Focuses on methods individuals and organizations can use to secure computers, applications and networks and provides the basics of digital forensics.
- Managers and Business Professional Track – Addresses implementation and management of an information security business continuity plan, managing risk and methods to keep systems safe from intrusion.
No country, industry, community or individual is immune to cyber risks.
Cyber space is woven into the very fabric of our daily lives.
