OpenCape has appointed Louis Becco, Lead Instructor of Cyber Security at Cape Cod Community College, to its Board of Directors.
A resident of Hyannis, Becco is currently in his seventh year as Lead Instructor for the Cyber Security Program he created from the ground up for Cape Cod Community College in West Barnstable.
Becco designed 12 classes and teaches six per semester, while advising 54 students.
“I absolutely love teaching and I’m inspired by how well my graduates are doing,” said Louis, who is originally from New York. He moved here with his wife in 2005 to work in the hospitality industry and learned that he had a knack for information technology. He received an assoicate’s degree from Cape Cod Community College and went to earn a bachelor’s degree from Curry College and a master’s degree in Science in Computer Information Systems with a concentration in Security from Boston University.
“I appreciate the mission and their commitment to access for all. I want to be a part of that,” said Becco about his appointment. “I never thought that I would be considered for a Board of Directors. When I was asked, I was honored. I did my homework on the organization to make sure they weren’t just trying to fill a diversity quota. And when I did, I was glad to see that there were interesting men and women from a wide range of tech-industries on the Board.”
“Louis’ credentials are unmatched,” said OpenCape Board Member, Alison Caron, who teaches at the college with Becco and is responsible for recruiting him. “He’s an expert in cyber security, as well as in program development and training students to work in tech careers. I am thrilled that he’s agreed to be on the Board.”
