Cal State University San Bernardino receives grant money

Grant will help promote cybersecurity

Cal State San Bernardino has received a $3 million grant that it will use to develop cyber talent in the Inland Empire.

The donation from the National Security Foundation will help finance the university and persuade students to enter that cybersecurity field, according to a statement on the university’s website.

“Our goal is to ensure that students in high school, community college and four-year institutions have a direct path into the cyber apprenticeship pipeline as well as internships and, ultimately, jobs,” said Tony Coulson, executive director of the university’s Cybersecurity Center and a professor of information decision sciences at Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration.

Since 2010, the Cybersecurity Center has brought in more than $32 million worth of grant-sponsored programs from different agencies, including the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education, the Department of Defense, the National Cybersecurity Training and Education Center, and the National Science Foundation, according to the statement.
