Leahy Symposium WEB 2022 1NORTHFIELD, Vt. —Norwich University will host the “U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy Cyber Symposium” on August 16, with U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., remotely joining President Mark Anarumo, Ph.D., distinguished experts and special guests for a day-long discussion on the latest innovations in cybersecurity and the importance of cyber education and workforce development in Vermont.

Held in Mack Hall Auditorium, this event is free and open to the public and includes panel discussions on Department of Defense (DoD) Cyber Institutes, future technology in cybersecurity, and the state of cybersecurity in Vermont. At 11:15 a.m., there will be a special presentation honoring Leahy for generations to come.

“While I am disappointed I will not be able to attend the symposium in person, I am proud of all Norwich University, its students, faculty and administration have accomplished in the realm of cybersecurity,” Leahy said. “Their work has made us safer by training a generation of cyber experts. I am proud to have championed the University’s work in Congress and will continue to do so until the end of my term.”

The August 16 symposium includes a keynote presentation by Lt. Gen. Robert J. Skinner (USAF), Director of the Defense Information Systems Agency and Commander of the Joint Force Headquarters DODIN. Other distinguished guests and keynote presenters include: Eric Goldstein, Executive Assistant Director for Cybersecurity for the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and Annette Redmond, ’83, Deputy Assistant Secretary (DAS) for Intelligence Policy and Coordination (IPC) in the Bureau of Intelligence and Research (INR).

Vermont’s longest-serving U.S. Senator and the fifth-longest-serving Senator in U.S. history, Leahy’s career of eight terms spans almost five decades. His pending retirement will cap 25 years of cybersecurity education support that helped birth the Norwich University Applied Research Institutes and land the university over $70 million in cybersecurity-related research and development grants and contracts. For instance, Norwich University most recently announced $4 million in federal funding to create an artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and quantum computing academic and experiential learning center. Federal funding also established Norwich University as the lead institution of DoD Cyber Institutes, a partnership established in Fall 2020 among the six Senior Military Colleges, of which Norwich is the oldest and include: The Citadel, University of North Georgia, Virginia Tech, Texas A&M and Virginia Military Institute.

Norwich University programs are consistently ranked among the nation’s best for cybersecurity education. Norwich University is recognized as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and has received designation as a Center of Digital Forensics Academic Excellence (CDFAE) by the Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3). Beginning in 2002, Norwich University became a member of what is now called the National Science Foundation's Cyber Corps: Scholarship for Service program.

Norwich is partnered with the U.S. Army Reserves (USAR) to develop cybereducation curricula that align with federal standards and cybersecurity needs. Most recently, Norwich's online graduate program was named one of the top ten best cybersecurity graduate programs in the country by Universities.com. Norwich is also home to GenCyber@NU, a National Security Agency and National Science Foundation-funded cybersecurity camp for high school students.
