I joined Cypress College as a computer networking professor in 2002. Since then, I have further established the Cisco Local Academy, offering a range of courses including a series of five courses to prepare students for the Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) and Cisco CyberOps Associate industry certifications. I have been involved in establishing Cybersecurity and Cyber Defense certificate program and Cyber Defense AS degree in our CIS department. I am currently the Point of Contact (PoC) for our Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE-CD) designation by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
