Army to Kick Off Aberdeen Proving Ground Cyber Courses; Victor Carrozzo Comments

cyberThe U.S. Army will begin to offer a graduate-level certificate program in cybersecurity on Feb. 10 to all Aberdeen Proving Ground engineers and scientists in an effort to equip them with cyber skills.

The University of Delaware at the University Center in Aberdeen, Maryland, will offer the three-course sequence that comprises an introduction to cybersecurity, techniques to harden computer systems and advanced cybersecurity, the Army said Thursday.

Victor Carrozzo, Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center human capital cell specialist, said CERDEC created the program after it identified a workforce development gap through a survey.

The University of Delaware program will run as a live cohort at the Northeastern Maryland Higher Education Applied Technology Center.

“Our goal is to promote cross-fertilization and networking within the APG cyber community as well as the technical aspect of learning,” Carrozzo said.
