Partnerships & Community Outreach

The UWF Center for Cybersecurity works to advance cybersecurity through collaborative partnerships and community outreach.

Bringing Cybersecurity to the Forefront, Together

Through thoughtful, collaborative, and strategic partnerships, we bring a level of illumination to cybersecurity that individually would not be possible, creating mutually beneficial relationships that positively impact the workforce and economic development and community outreach.

The UWF Center for Cybersecurity partners with academic, government, business, and industry organizations and the community to address real-world cybersecurity issues while developing local talent, creating jobs, and encouraging and promoting cybersecurity as a whole. We also provide outreach programs that enhance cybersecurity awareness and interest among K-12 and college students and teachers and the community.
