GRANT HELPS NU TRAIN THE NEXT GENERATION OF CYBER SOLDIERS
Norwich University has received a grant of $714,285 from the National Security Agency in collaboration with the United States Army Reserve to better prepare soldiers for cyber defense. Through the grant, Norwich will award scholarships to U.S. Army Reserve soldiers entering the online graduate certificate programs for information security and assurance. Norwich University Applied Research Institutes (NUARI) will provide curriculum development in support of both the undergraduate and graduate programs. The online graduate certificate offerings will see significant enhancements to aid the hands-on experience. NUARI will also develop reusable modules, or units, to support and integrate a critical infrastructure response-and-recovery exercise using the DECIDE® platform.
Norwich is already one of six universities in the nation to partner with the United States Army Reserve in the Cyber Private Public Partnership Initiative, focused on fostering the intellectual development of the next generation of cybersecurity professionals.
