As an active member of the Cyber Security Education Consortium, CareerTech has collaboratively worked with the Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security and the Oklahoma State Office of Finance for the last four years to design and facilitate an annual Cyber Security Seminar. These seminars are provided to information security professionals employed by state government agencies.  The seminars incorporate breakout sessions and a four-hour tabletop exercise. The Cyber Security Seminar is held at a technology center campus and is free of charge to state government employees.  Oklahoma CSEC is working with other CSEC member states to replicate this event.

CareerTech programs also provide security awareness training for local public schools and internal staff to meet annual professional development requirements.  In addition, a cornerstone of the CareerTech System is strong corporate partnerships as evidenced by letters of support (click here). CareerTech faculty frequently speak at Chambers of Commerce, Rotary Clubs and other local professional groups.
