The GenCyber program evolved out of the necessity to solve the Nation's shortfall of skilled cybersecurity professionals. This Program aims to inspire students and to increase their knowledge, skills, ability and talent in cybersecurity. This is critical to the future of our country's national and economic security as it becomes even more reliant on cyber-based technology in every aspect of our daily lives. 

Program goals include:

  • Ignite, increase and sustain awareness of Secondary through Post-Secondary cybersecurity content, cybersecurity, and career opportunities for participants through year-round engagement. 
  • Increase student diversity in cybersecurity college(s) and career readiness pathways at the Secondary/Post-Secondary Levels.

The GenCyber Cybersecurity Concepts are fundamental to understanding and practicing effective cybersecurity. They represent the foundation upon which cybersecuity mechanisms are reliably built and cybersecurity policies can be reliably implemented.
