University of New Orleans Gears Up for 4th Annual GenCyber Program

The University of New Orleans (UNO) is preparing to host its fourth annual intensive cybersecurity program designed for high school teachers. GenCyber will accept high school teachers from across the country for the program taking place July 10-21 in New Orleans.

“As our daily lives become ever more reliant on cyber systems, the importance of strong cybersecurity will continue to grow and expand,” said Vassil Roussev, professor of computer science. “There is an insatiable demand for trained professionals to meet the needs of both industry and government agencies. GenCyber is a unique opportunity to help prepare our high school teachers for the challenges of promoting essential cybersecurity awareness and skills among all students.”

The program is free to participants. Each of the 20 teachers selected will receive a $500 stipend, a Chromebook full of security tools needed for training, and meals and lodging if needed.

Applications are due on June 6. To apply, visit
