Baylor and MCC team up for cyber-security training

The McLennan Community College Law Enforcement Academy and Baylor University partnered together to give local law enforcement training on cybercrime through the Cyber-Security Operational Research and Training program.

The training took place at MCC’s Emergency Services Education Center and Baylor helps provide experts in the subject matter. The training looked at the threats to different connected devices and how to protect them from cybercrime.

"With all the different technology products that we currently have and that are coming out each and every day, we have to provide this training to our law enforcement officers so we can do a better job and provide better services for our community," said Dennis Stapleton, coordinator of MCC's Law Enforcement Academy. "With law enforcement officers being better informed on how to investigate it, then they can help provide better information to the public on how they can protect themselves in regards to cyber threats."

Over thirty members of the law enforcement community representing agencies from all over McLennan County participated in the training. Baylor and MCC plan to hold additional cybersecurity trainings in the spring and summer.
