CCDF Advisory Council

The Eastern Florida State College Cybersecurity and Digital Forensics Advisory Council is comprised of prominent cybersecurity and cyber forensic professionals from the Space Coast area. These industry leaders provide invaluable guidance to EFSC in directing curriculum and techniques around the latest trends and challenges facing our community and local businesses.

The council meets bi-annually and plays an instrumental role in fostering growth and educational initiatives for the center, as well as in providing guidance for strategies to better educate our students.
