Public awareness of Cybersecurity threats is gripping our nation. Are you prepared?
The Harford Community College Cyber Defense Association (CDA) is a student run association that focuses on cybersecurity and how to identify, protect, respond and defend organizational assets. Our main purpose is to develop and encourage cybersecurity awareness and application by providing students with the tools and education they need to advance their cybersecurity careers.
To accomplish this goal, we participate in community/national cyber challenges, outreach programs about security related topics, host tech talks and guest speakers that are leaders in the cybersecurity field.
The cyber program recently installed two cybersecurity labs to instruct students in all aspects of cybersecurity and provide hands-on practice. The CDA utilizes the new labs to instruct students and practice hands-on cyber challenges or topics that will enrich the student's understanding of cybersecurity.

Students at the Baltimore Cyber Range
On Saturday, April 28, 2018, Professor Frank Mayer successfully led a team of five cybersecurity students through a training exercise at the newly opened Baltimore Cyber Range (BCR). The exercise included sophisticated defensive operations scenarios that included real world threats. This one day Cyber Range experience was made possible through a DLLR EARN grant for community college students of which HCC was the first to participate. In addition to the valuable training opportunity, students will receive a certificate for their participation and support from the Range with connecting them with employment opportunities with BCR partners.
Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month in Joppa Hall 008 (unless otherwise noted).
