The Cyber Innovation Center (CIC) in Bossier City, Louisiana received a $5 million continuation grant from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on August 29, 2014. The fiscal year 2014 grant supports the continued, nation-wide expansion of the CIC's cyber education model. "We expect to reach over 2 million students and 15,000 teachers by 2020 - significantly expanding the pipeline of cyber professionals entering the U.S. workforce" says G.B. Cazes, Vice President of the Cyber Innovation Center. By partnering with universities and high schools, the CIC enables communities across the U.S. to develop cyber focused education and professional development programs to produce high- skilled, knowledge-based workers. These cyber professionals will help DHS improve critical infrastructure resiliency and address the growing cyber threat to public and private networks.
