Closing the Cybersecurity Skills Gap - 50% discount for federal employees for Champlain program
January 27, 2016
Safeguarding the workforce is a top priority for OPM as they work to strengthen Federal networks and systems and safeguard critical data in one of the most important challenges of our time.
Across the Federal Government, they are working together to address critical cybersecurity skills gaps and help address the higher education needs of the Federal workforce. To help accomplish this goal, they have leveraged the expertise of higher education partners and have formed alliances with in recent years, including University of Maryland University College and Champlain College.
As part of the broader effort to attract more cybersecurity talent to Federal service, Director Cobert today announced the launch of Champlain College’s new Master of Science in Information Security Operations. It is is being offered at a 50% discount to Federal employees via the truED® alliance.
