The Jarrod T. Mochnick Cyber Security Center will serve as a learning hub for Pittsburgh Technical College students in the information systems and technology program, studying cyber security and digital forensics. The center is designed as a pod-style, interactive learning center providing heads in, hands on learning opportunities. The new center will provide opportunity for instruction of information security through host system hardening, system availability monitoring, applied encryption and incident analysis. Through an in-house, standalone security environment, students will gain exposure to new hacking techniques and prevention and data loss protection.
Media is invited to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony and remain for a tour of the new cyber security center, along with numerous photo and interview opportunities.
