The Cal Poly California Cybersecurity Institute accelerates unique opportunities to advance the Cal Poly Learn by Doing pedagogy for students and faculty.
CCI accomplishes this through the following activities:
The Space and Cybersecurity Newsletter
As the cyber domain changes, so have the priorities of the CCI. Some of the past activities found at the CCI include:
Space Cybersecurity Symposium 2020
Journal for Threat Intelligence (2022):
Trafficking Investigations Hub
Additionally, CCI has been involved in a variety of student, staff, and faculty research projects related to cybersecurity.
Making Connections and Pursuing a Career in Cybersecurity
Originally not interested in technology, Sal’s time at Cal Poly and the CCI has put him on a pathway for a career in cybersecurity.
Going from E-sports to Cyber
The CCI provided an opportunity for Benjamin use his past experiences in gaming and e-sports for cybersecurity education.
Leveraging an Interest in Technology
Gwen was drawn to come work at the CCI for two reasons: an interest in technology and something flexible that worked with her school schedule.
