TRIDENT RECOGNIZED FOR ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE, AFFORDABILITY

DELL CASE STUDY SHINES LIGHT ON TRIDENT’S DATA PROTECTION
Personal computing giant Dell used Trident’s recent implementation of Dell Data Protection | Encryption as a case study to illustrate the importance of protecting data and how a solution such as this can benefit an organization. As a 100% online university, Trident’s security and encryption of highly sensitive data is a top priority – amplified by the fact that many staff and faculty are located outside of the university’s Cypress, CA headquarters. The project, led by Senior Systems Engineer Mike Siegel, is discussed at length here.
TRIDENT DEBUTS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WEBINARS
In an effort to best serve the needs of their diverse and growing community, Trident has begun to produce and broadcast webinars focused on academic, career development, and professional growth. The corporate webinars, developed through a coordinated effort by Trident’s College of Business Administration, Marketing department, and Outreach & Partnerships team, are designed to provide current and relevant learning solutions for Trident’s corporate partners. Since their debut in late spring, Trident has broadcast webinars for multiple corporate partners. Webinars from the Career Advising & Development Center will follow in August with a webinar on military-to-civilian skills building called “Do You Speak Civilian?”
