"The National Science Foundation (NSF) has selected nine universities to receive more than $29 million in total funding as part of its CyberCorps® Scholarship for Service program, a major agency initiative to strengthen the security of America’s cyber space.
The CyberCorps® SFS program aims to boost the number of well-trained cybersecurity professionals for careers in the public sector, particularly in government agencies and organizations. The nine new awardees join 89 academic institutions that are already part of the CyberCorps® SFS program, which now extends across 39 states."
There is no doubt that there is a shortage of qualified talent in Infosec. The NSF is investing in universities to help increase these numbers, the biggest thing that sticks out here is that attacks and threats will continue to rise.
