Plymouth State sets summer opening for cybersecurity center
College sees effort as step to help employers ‘fill critical, open positions’
Plymouth State University has announced plans to open the Center for Cybersecurity, featuring a program developed by New York-based cybersecurity education company Cybint that will be taught by PSU faculty.
The 480-hour online program will launch July 1 and is designed for employees of small, medium and large companies.
According to PSU, as of October 2020, there were more than 1,000 vacant cybersecurity positions in New Hampshire.
“Our collaboration with Cybint is a great example of the public/private partnerships that thrive in New Hampshire,” said Plymouth State University President Donald Birx. “It will help employers fill critical, open positions, while providing pathways to promising careers.”
