Kristopher Cox, chief information security officer, J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College, was named a Symantec 2012 Cyber Awards winner. Cox sat down with FedScoop Radio to discuss the award and cybersecurity education.

Through his leadership and direction, Cox blazed the path for JSRCC to host its first U.S. Cyber Challenge, which aims to significantly reduce the cyber workforce shortage by serving as the premier program to identify, attract, recruit and place the next generation of cybersecurity professionals.

Through his efforts over the course of a year, Cox successfully coordinated everything from catering to press interviews for JRSRCC's USCC, and ultimately enabled 40 students to secure jobs and scholarships. The Cyber Awards recognized Cox for his continued efforts to raise awareness of the importance of cybersecurity to the next generation of IT leaders.
