CyberWatch West will soon be National Cybersecurity Training & Education Center (NCYTE)
We are very proud of our contributions and accomplishments at CyberWatch West. In the six years since inception, we have been a dynamic source of the exceptional growth of the Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE) program in western U.S. states. The goal of CAE is to reduce vulnerability in our national information infrastructure by promoting higher education and expertise in cyber defense.
Over 275 colleges and universities received our application assistance services as they worked toward CAE designation. Forty-eight states, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico are now homes to at least one CAE institution. Thousands of educators participated in the workshops and webinars we hosted or sponsored over the years. Our membership has grown eight fold and includes high schools, community colleges, and universities across the nation. We have bee awarded a grant to serve as a National Cyber Resource Center to provide resources for cybersecurity education.
