Under the leadership of Waleed Farag, grant principal investigator and co-principal investigators Ben Rafoth, Crystal Machado, and Mac Fiddner, IUP, along with a selected group of national universities, has been awarded funding to start an innovative project to enhance cyber security education in western Pennsylvania.
This project has the following objectives:
To develop a cohesive set of services to innovatively address known challenges facing cyber security education. Proposing effective solutions to such challenges will facilitate the development, retention, and expansion of a skillful cyber security
workforce to meet the increasing demand.
To incorporate an interdisciplinary approach in designing and implementing the services mentioned above that will appeal to diverse cyber talent—including women and minorities—and serve a geographical area that is predominantly rural.
