Project Description: The Inland Empire CyberHub Centers project will establish a multi-college, regional cyber-security support network that will help the region to build strong cyber-security career pathways for students. The region has existing cyber-security programs that will be strengthened and expanded with the creation of Inland Empire (IE) CyberHub centers. Colleges not currently offering cyber-security courses and pathways will be able to expand into this subject area with the help and support of the regional CyberHub centers and the CA Cyber Hub. Participating colleges will incorporate cyber into their campus and/or makerspace; support cyber-security pathways and certificate programs; become a host-site for Cyber Patriot competitions, practices and training with their high school partners; and support professional development for CTE faculty, Cyber Patriot teams, coaches and mentors. The goal of the IE CyberHub Centers project is to expand existing cyber-security programs and activities in the Inland Empire. Establishing IE CyberHub centers throughout the region will allow us to increase cyber-security course offerings at the community colleges and to develop cyber-security pathways from secondary to post-secondary institutions. Increased cyber-security programs and services will help our regional colleges to fill gaps identified in labor market research and data.
