Held December 6-7, the conference supports growing the cybersecurity workforce of the future.

In his junior year, Marchionda won a scholarship via the CyberStartAmerica cyber game, and has been an active member as team captain for the CyberPatriot Career & Technical Student Organization (CTSO) for the last two years.

“Jacob has been a stellar student in our Cybersecurity program,” cybersecurity teacher Jason Canfield said. “He has come a long way, and I am sure he will continue on his cyber/IT professional journey through his college years.”

The NICE K12 cybersecurity conference gathers educators and cyber professionals for a summit on the current trends, data points, and key topics for K-12 instruction.
