Posted on 10/13/2017 6:03:08 AM

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.
