Cyber Centers of Excellence Grant Program (CCE)


As we move further into a future that relies primarily on cybersecurity to protect core business assets, digital defense skills have been of growing importance – particularly in Higher Education. Cybersecurity is one of the fastest-growing fields in technology and perhaps the most severely understaffed, with a shortage prediction of 3.5 million professionals by 2021.

Universities are also struggling to see their cyber programs take off as the shortage is weighing down on professors and staff, having to combat a lack of qualified specialized educators and resources. To boost higher education's ability to support learners and nurture a cyber-ready workforce today takes a strong strategy for advancing cyber education. It takes a Cyber Center.

What is a Cyber Center?

Cyber Centers are regional hubs for training to re-skill and up-skill students, professionals, and corporations in cybersecurity. Learn more. In 2018, Cybint launched its Cyber Center Global Network to connect higher-education institutions, industry, and government in a collaborative effort to offer advanced cyber education solutions to the community.

For the first time, Cybint and CyberGym are teaming up to open an elite grant program that will award Universities and Colleges with the tools and programs to become a leading cyber education center at the national level.
