"Sure, we currently have some great cyber training programs. Many have existed for years and several programs have emerged this year. Our nation will benefit from programs like the “Rocket Girl” Cyber Camp becoming more widespread. Rocket Girl Cyber Camp encourages the young ladies who attend to pursue their interests in cybersecurity and showcase different careers in the field. Also, the partnership between the National Security Agency, Dakota State University, and AT&T, sponsors of the camp, signal an understanding that this is a national crisis. They know that desired outcomes will take the collaboration of government and industry. Tech training programs like the Rocket Girl program are on the right track. It provides ongoing support to students after the camp through monthly calls, webinars, and hands-on challenges."
