    MUSCATINE, Iowa– Eastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) is excited to announce a new partnership with the National Cybersecurity Training and Education Center (NCyTE), making the college the first higher ed institution in Iowa to join the organization.

    NCyTE Center began in 2011 under the name CyberWatch West, with its initial objective to increase the quality and quantity of the cybersecurity workforce throughout the Western United States. Following years of growth and success, CyberWatch West was awarded a grant through the National Science Foundation to serve as a National Cyber Resource Center. As a result, CyberWatch West became what is known today as the NCyTE Center.

    Admission into the organization follows an intensive process, requiring EICC to meet a set of rigorous standards. The NCyTE Center’s focus on student, professional and curriculum development will connect Eastern Iowa Community Colleges’ faculty, staff and students to a number of industry resources. As a member of NCyTE, EICC has access to curriculum and program creation tools, as well as travel support to attend cyber-security related conferences and events for professional development. EICC students can also take advantage of opportunities available through regional and national competitions. In addition, members gain contacts to industry partners for internships, workshops and speakers who can share their real-life experiences working in cybersecurity.

    Eastern Iowa Community Colleges offers a Security and Forensics Associate in Applied Science Degree, as well as a Networking for Cybersecurity Diploma and Cybersecurity Certificate. The college’s Urban Campus located in downtown Davenport is also home to a Cybersecurity Center, where both students and community members can access cybersecurity resources, news and information.
