UM-Flint Office of Economic Development, Scan of Cybersecurity Training Programs

May 2021 - May 2021


A PCLP fellow studied both the local cybersecurity training ecosystem and best practices in communities with demographics similar to Flint. Topics of interest included available types of training, cost, and delivery methods for high school students. Through virtual interviews with local stakeholders, the fellow learned if there was a demand for this type of training, and documented challenges and opportunities in communities that have been able to implement cybersecurity training programs. The research findings will be used to help inform UM-Flint’s Office of Economic Development, as well as community stakeholders, policymakers, and potential funders
