CyberMontana Advances University of Montana’s Mission to be Cybersecurity Hub for Treasure State

The University of Montana is fortifying its positions as the cybersecurity center for the entire Treasure State.

Coming on the heels of a 2023 U.S. Government Accountability Office report that illustrates how unprepared American infrastructure is to fight cybercrime, UM’s CyberMontana has expanded statewide outreach to grow Montana’s cybersecurity workforce.

CyberMontana, the state’s hub for cyber workforce education, has delivered technical and non-technical cyber education to 35 schools in 26 Montana communities since receiving the Montana’s Future at Work grant from the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation in 2022. These visits include many rural Montana communities that lack access to up-to-date cybersecurity assets, such as Augusta, Bridger and White Sulphur Springs.
