With the incidence of data breaches increasing daily in the U.S., and all over the world, it’s obvious that we will need to develop creative, smart and savvy, high-tech defenses against these threats for decades to come. Since the cyber hackers and their methods are getting smarter and more conniving every day, we must take decisive actions now to fight back proactively.
One way we can build our defenses against these cyber-attacks is to develop the talent needed to literally man the front lines in this war. That talent – students choosing IT as a career – is now hard at work in universities and colleges across the nation that offer future-focused cyber security majors or curriculums.
Among the institutions of higher learning in Florida that are leading the nation in the study of cyber-security offense and defense are Florida State University and the University of Tampa. To help these two top institutions achieve their missions of preparing students for current and future cyber warfare, Adsero Security has made cash donations to both universities’ cyber security programs.
We are going on record today as urging other businesses and individuals reading this to provide financial or in-kind support to cyber security departments, study initiatives and individual students of the discipline. These gifts and other support will help our nation to build an intellectual bulwark that will protect consumer, corporate, healthcare, academic and business data from cyber hackers in the future. We hope you’ll join us in giving to this worthwhile cause that will make a difference in all our lives for decades to come.
