Our mission is to create a self-sustaining, broad-based, rich, neutral and independent cyber "ecosystem". This not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) public-private partnership provides an effective coordinating and operational framework aligning common interests across a multitude of sectors. Key to this effort is seeking feedback and integrating input from those working in the field and from policy-makers.
The foundation and initial phase of this endeavor is workforce development through competency-based cyber training with an emphasis on cybersecurity. We will organize and focus subject matter expertise to create widely available cybersecurity training resources through collaborative efforts with our industry and training partners. Over time, we will develop and propagate competency-based cybersecurity certifications.
We will continue to "connect the dots", filling in gaps through incremental development and seeding the growth of a vigorous cyber industry in the State of Florida as a model for the rest of the country.
