ExCIITED is a program developed to introduce rural and underrepresented groups to cybersecurity concepts via outreach, teaching, and hands-on training in courses and internship. Students received college credit for an Engineering 101 course, completed Security+ certification, and obtained security clearances. Come learn about the process of running the program, from contacting schools and selecting students to teaching Engineering 101 online. This presentation will cover the program blueprint, success stories, and tips for implementing similar initiatives, as well as difficulties faced and what we will change before next year.
