Identify the cybersecurity needs of Western North Carolina
Western North Carolina isn’t Silicon Valley. But that doesn’t mean our businesses don’t face some of the same threats.
To become more resilient to cyber threats, we need to educate and assist business leaders and influential community members to raise awareness of risks and present strategies to improve our security.
Address those needs with by developing ethical professionals of excellent character
There may be a need for cybersecurity services in the region, but the available talents aren’t yet there to match that need.
Through our partnership with Montreat College and other organizations in the community, we created a network of cybersecurity professionals who are ready to educate and train that workforce.

We created an entire pipeline — from education to career — to help establish the workforce that Western North Carolina needs.
