Sugar Land, Texas (October 15, 2020) – ThreatGEN, an operational technology (OT) security firm, announces Seminole State College of Florida’s adoption of ThreatGEN® Red vs. Blue Education Edition in its Associate of Science Degree in Information Systems Technology. Recently, the program was named a winner of the Excellence and Equity Community College STEM Award (https://www.seminolestate.edu/newsroom/article/6229/seminole-state-wins-national-award-for-outstanding-stem-education) by the Aspen Institute College Excellence Program and the Seimens Foundation (https://highered.aspeninstitute.org/siemens-aspen-stem/), with part of the proceeds funding the adoption of ThreatGEN® Red vs. Blue.
“Not surprising but as soon as I started using the (ThreatGEN® Red vs. Blue) software, other faculty heard about it and are excited.”, said Dr. Stark, Program Manager of the Networking and Cybersecurity Program at Seminole State College of Florida. “Within the first week of introducing the program we had students engaged in cybersecurity. They were so excited about the multiplayer capabilities; students were scheduling extra games to hone their skills.”
Working with Seminole State College’s Dr. Adam Stark, ThreatGEN decided to sponsor an upcoming cybersecurity competition in Spring 2021 in conjunction with the college. “Seeing ThreatGEN® Red vs. Blue used within Seminole’s program urged us to support their upcoming competition,” said ThreatGEN CEO Clint Bodungen.
Dr. Stark continued, “Our faculty, as well as our students, are excited about the upcoming cybersecurity competition. We are working with our student-led IT club and the college’s recreational sports department to spread the word to students across all departments. Along with challenging our current students, we hope to introduce new students to these concepts.”
Further information on the Spring 2021 cybersecurity competition will be released before the end of 2020.
