UCCS Hosts U.S. Senator Gardner for Cybersecurity Discussion
UCCS hosted U.S. Senator Cory Gardner and Regent Kyle Hybl for a roundtable discussion on multiple cybersecurity efforts in the Colorado Springs community. These efforts include creating the new National Cyber Intelligence Center (NCIC) and UCCS’ Cyber Private Public Partnership (Cyber P3) consortium, a partnership with the US Army Reserve and 7 other universities to provide cyber education and training (read more here). Gardner discussed the political landscape regarding cybersecurity policy.
UCCS is the designated lead university for the P3i consortium and is a key founding member of the NCIC. While these are two separate cybersecurity efforts, UCCS is privileged to play a leadership role in working with the State of Colorado, the federal government and the local community to support intensive cyber education, training and research priorities. Those in attendance included UCCS Vice Chancellor Martin Wood, NCIC Interim Director Gen. Ed Anderson (Ret) and Assistant Vice President for Federal Relations, David Sprenger.
