Coastline Community’s cybersecurity program was designated last year as a “National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance/Cybersecurity“ by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.

Viewing national CyberPatriot scores are high school and middle school team coaches Tobi West, Dwight Osborne, Linda Dewberry, Mark Smith, Irvin Lemus, Greg French, Jeanette Hogan and Robert Hays. Over 100 students from county middle and high schools gather at Coastline Community College in Garden Grove for the nationwide CyberPatriot event which puts teams of students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company.
