Cal State San Bernardino’s cybersecurity program has received $963,000 in federal funding that will be used to start a new project.

The grant, will help launch the Tech and Workforce Hub Project, will assist students at the Cybersecurity Center begin their cybersecurity careers according to a statement on the university’s website.

The funding, secured by U.S. Sen. Alex Padilla and state Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-San Bernardino, will also address the shortage of qualified people now working in cybersecurity in the United States.

“As cybersecurity becomes an increasingly critical part of our national security, I’m proud to represent a leading cybersecurity institution in Congress,” Aguilar said in the statement. “The nearly $1 million for Cal State San Bernardino will support their Tech and Workforce and Apprenticeship Hub, where the next generation of cybersecurity professionals will receive high-quality training.”

Funding for that program is part of a $12.2 million aid package signed into law by President Biden last month to assist California State University projects, according to the statement.
