WHO WE ARE:

The Military Cyber Professionals of Monterey (MCPM), a Club of the NPS Foundation, is a group of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Academics and others at NPS and the surrounding community (like DLI) who are interested in the development of Cyber. The MCPM President is Darien Pitts, MAJ, US Army.

WHAT WE DO:

We connect with each other and partners with shared interests at regular social events, professional development events, recognition ceremonies, field trips, and online. We have a strong STEM outreach program, with which we connect interested members with incentivized volunteer opportunities in the local community that invest in the next generation of our nation. Scholarships and monetary support of research are planned to be awarded to those making significant contributions to the development of the American military cyber profession.

The below events calendar provides info such as event location, time, and description. Contact the MCPM STEM outreach coordinator for information about ongoing opportunities. Note the the calendar is only accessible to members!

WHY:

More than a fad or a fleeting interest, we are deeply interested in Cyber, its role in the DoD, and getting to know eachother. It is an enduring area of concern and deserves our attention. Participation in the MCPM offers numerous benefits, which are articulated on the NPS Foundation and MCPA membership pages.
