FIU and OAS launch two-day cybersecurity course in D.C.

On April 6-7, FIU offered the Cybersecurity Strategy and Leadership executive certificate course at the Organization of American States (OAS) in Washington, D.C.

More than thirty students from across the globe were in attendance to learn about the most critical cyber threats facing the public and private sectors and the role policy plays in preventing cyber-attacks. This is the third course to be offered in Washington for FIU alumni and partners.

Ryder, a U.S.-based provider of transportation and supply chain solutions, funded the attendance of 10 women for the course through the Ryder Women in Leadership Executive Education Scholarship. The course was co-sponsored by the Organization of American States, with support from New America, Microsoft, and Ryder. Ryder will also fund a BizGov Transportation intern in DC in the summer 2017 who will later work at Ryder’s corporate office in Miami during fall 2017.

The certificate was offered by FIU’s Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs and College of Business, in partnership with the OAS and FIU in D.C.
