Cybersecurity Center

Cybersecurity is the defense against online threats for hardware, software, and data that are connected to the internet. Individuals and businesses both utilize this technique to prevent illegal access to data centers and other digital systems. A solid cybersecurity plan can offer a good security posture against malicious assaults intended to gain access to, alter, delete, destroy, or extort the systems and sensitive data of an organization or user. Security measures are essential in thwarting attempts to shut down or interfere with
a system or device’s functioning.

Our goal is to empower everyone in our community with the knowledge they need to practice safe cybersecurity procedures and to build the next generation of cybersecurity experts.

Campus Resources - Career Services Center

The Career Services department at Stillman College has established dynamic and impactful partnerships aimed at enhancing students’ professional growth and opportunities. Through a multifaceted approach, we connect students with the corporate world to foster meaningful interactions and skill-building experiences.

Our signature “Tiger Talks” series, held on a monthly basis, exemplifies our commitment to forging partnerships. Esteemed CEOs from major corporations are invited to our campus to engage with students, sharing their insights, experiences, and wisdom. This platform not only inspires students but also nurtures connections that can lead to future internships and job opportunities.

The annual career fairs organized by our department serve as a cornerstone for students to directly interface with high-level companies. This invaluable experience allows students to showcase their talents, learn about diverse industries, and establish connections that can shape their professional journey.

Our distinctive “Pipeline Programs” with ARD and Cintas demonstrate our dedication to creating structured pathways to success. These programs provide students with tailored opportunities to engage with industry leaders, gain practical skills, and potentially secure internships and employment within these respected companies.

Collaboration extends to the academic realm through our “Faculty Talks” initiative. Partnering with corporations such as Shipt and Warren Averett accounting, we ensure that our curriculum aligns seamlessly with industry standards. This proactive approach guarantees that our students are equipped with the relevant skills and knowledge that employers seek.

The impact of our efforts is evidenced by the diverse realms in which our students secure internships, representing a range of industries and disciplines. This achievement underscores the effectiveness of our partnerships in preparing students for the real-world challenges of their chosen fields.

In conclusion, the Career Services department at Stillman College thrives on fostering partnerships that go beyond traditional boundaries. From hosting influential CEOs through Tiger Talks to facilitating career fairs, pipeline programs, faculty collaborations, and internship placements, our partnerships are the backbone of our commitment to students’ professional success.
