SYBAC Completes Cybersecurity Training

Congratulations to our Statewide Youth Broadband Advisory Council (SYBAC) students that have completed their online cybersecurity training from Fortinet. In April 2020, Fortinet addressed a need to further build security expertise by making all its self-paced courses from the Network Security Expert (NSE) Training Institute available for free.

Throughout the school year, the students worked through the NSE 1 certificate. They developed a foundational understanding of the ever-increasing threat landscape and common network security concepts. The certificate is valid for two years from the date completed.

We think it is great that the SYBAC students below are making cybersecurity a priority!

  • Justin Wells, Fremont-Mills High School
  • Chase McAndrews, Clarinda High School
  • Sam Doud, Earlham High School
  • Henry Shires, Valley High School, West Des Moines
  • Connor Fogarty, Valley High School, West Des Moines
  • JoAnn Hacker, Abraham Lincoln High School, Council Bluffs
