Grants to Help Educational Institutions Strengthen Cybersecurity
IBM is offering in-kind grants worth $3 million to six school districts to assist them in strengthening cybersecurity in the wake of reports of increased cyberattacks against schools. Teams from the IBM Service Corps Program will deliver the services, with a focus on helping districts prepare both proactive and reactive countermeasures for cyberthreats. School districts will be selected to receive the grant based on their level of cybersecurity need and whether the district has a cybersecurity plan, needs to update its plan, has had a breach in the past, and has received cybersecurity training.
The biannual National Cyber League (NCL) Competition simulates real-life cyberthreats in a safe environment for high school students to learn how to defend organizations against such threats and keep them secure.
