Today's organizations are challenged with rapidly detecting cybersecurity breaches and effectively responding to security incidents. Teams of people in Security Operations Centers (SOC’s) keep a vigilant eye on security systems, protecting their organizations by detecting and responding to cybersecurity threats. CCNA Cyber Ops prepares candidates to begin a career working with associate-level cybersecurity analysts within security operations centers. (Certifications SECFND 210-250 & SECOPS 210-255).

This webinar highlights two winning programs from CESA’s 2018 State Leadership in Clean Energy Awards: Massachusetts’ Advancing Commonwealth Energy Storage (ACES) Program, and Rhode Island’s Block Island Offshore Wind Farm.     
In Massachusetts, the Advancing Commonwealth Energy Storage (ACES) Program was created to jump-start the state’s energy storage industry by piloting innovative, broadly replicable energy storage demonstration projects with multiple value streams, thereby priming Massachusetts for increased commercialization and deployment. ACES will demonstrate nine storage use cases to accelerate the adoption of storage technologies, provide benefits to customers and utilities, and highlight market and regulatory barriers. The 26 demonstration projects supported by the ACES program will collectively add 32MW/83MWh to the grid where only 4MW/7MWh currently exists. 
In December 2016, Rhode Island became home to North America’s first offshore wind farm with the successful installation and operation of the 30 MW Block Island Wind Farm. This five-turbine project was developed by Deepwater Wind of Providence, RI. The project connected Block Island to the mainland electrical grid for the first time, allowing residents to end reliance on imported diesel to meet their electric generation needs. The project represents a significant clean energy accomplishment for Rhode Island and the nation, and it is helping to spur an entirely new industry and job creator for the coastal economy. 
In two very different ways, each program is successfully advancing emerging clean energy technologies in their state. Guest speakers from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources (RIOER) will present.

A strong evaluation plan will give your proposal a competitive edge. In this webinar, the essential elements of an effective evaluation plan will be explained and demonstrated how to incorporate them into a proposal for the National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education program. This webinar also provides guidance on how to budget for an evaluation, locate a qualified evaluator, and use evaluative evidence to describe the results from prior NSF support (required if you’ve had previous NSF funding). Participants will receive an updated Evaluation Planning Checklist for ATE Proposals and other resources to help prepare strong evaluation plans.

The NCL is a defensive and offensive puzzle-based, capture-the-flag style cybersecurity competition. Its virtual training ground helps high school and college students prepare and test themselves against cybersecurity challenges that they will likely face in the workforce. All participants play the games simultaneously during Preseason, Regular Season and Postseason. NCL allows players of all levels to enter. Between easy, medium and hard challenges, students have multiple opportunities to really shine in areas as they excel. Registration for the Fall Season is 8/27/18 – 9/28/18.
