4 Value Proposition from UVSS The VCoE will Provide : O Overview of the CyberAcademy BOK O a. Phase I: Cybersecurity Introduction (Initial indoctrination into O common Cybersecurity issues) O i. During this phase, students will learn about field of Cybersecurity O through laboratory exercises that demonstrate the exploitation of O vulnerabilities that are relevant to their current use of technology. 4

5 Value Proposition O Improved prestige by attracting “the best and the brightest” by providing real world job Experience.

7 Value Proposition from UVSS The VCoE will Provide : O Phase III: Network Hosts Essentials O i. This phase of the BOK provides students with a foundational O understanding of the common hosts and their operating systems O typically found on networks (e.g. desktop/laptop; mobile (smart O phones/tablets); printers and scanners; operating systems). 7

This phase of the BOK takes a deep dive into Cybersecurity and O common implementation of Cybersecurity programmatics based on O industry best practice. Leveraging the SANS top 20 Critical O Controls, CyberAcademy teaches the students, via lecture and O laboratory exercise, how to design secure architectures and the O implement the tools needed to maintain adequate security posture. 9

10 Veterans’ Study Findings UVSS

11 Nature of the Challenge O 71% of female veterans served after Vietnam O 46% of veterans sustained serious injuries O 44% find transition to civilian life very difficult O 37% suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) 11 *Research conducted Fall 2012

12 Nature of the Challenge Growing number of returning military personnel in Harris County – already the second largest veterans’ population in the U.S. O Increasing numbers returning from Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) conflicts Unique needs for this post – 9/11 veteran cohort 12

13 Striking Consistency in Findings O Transition from structured military life to unstructured civilian life is challenging O Difficulty translating military skills to civilian workplace O Perception that military service is not valued/feelings of isolation O Access to and coordination of services is limited O Ability to interact with other veterans is critical 13

14 Conversation Quotes “I spent two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. I helped spread democracy and gave people a chance at freedom. Now, I’m a junior analyst looking at spreadsheets every day. I’m grateful, but it just can’t compare.” Afghanistan veteran 14

15 Conversation Quotes “In the military, your resume is pages long. You list every project you had a role in. In the civilian world, employers think a shorter resume is better. It is hard to translate what I learned in the military to some of the job openings I see online. When I do get an interview, I feel like all I can talk about is my military experience, and it seems like the interview goes downhill quickly.” Iraq veteran 15

16 Enhanced Information & Referral 16 UVSS Connects Veterans, Active Military and their Families to: Job readiness services & employment services Financial education and coaching Housing assistance, work clothing, tools and transportation Counseling services Health care services Substance abuse services Full range of benefits available
