Why CyberTrust Massachusetts

The Massachusetts cyber sector is large and growing but the talent pipeline of skilled, experienced, and diverse candidates can’t keep pace. At the same time, many local governments, non-profits, and small businesses are underresourced against growing cyber threats.

CyberTrust Massachusetts addresses these challenges by enabling the regional cyber ecosystem as a trusted partner to industry, academia, and government.

Creating Opportunities

Offering students and workers at all career stages, from all backgrounds statewide, access to advanced cyber education and training programs linked to cyber employers.

Growing the Workforce

Increasing the pipeline of skilled, experienced, inclusive, and diverse cyber candidates via hands-on, experiential learning environments.

Strengthening Security

Providing local governments, non-profits, and small businesses with affordable cybersecurity services to manage their defenses and combat growing cyber threats.
