WVU to establish innovative cybersecurity education, training facility



With the ongoing threat of cyberattacks becoming more sophisticated, West Virginia University is launching plans for a cybersecurity range — a specialized software and hardware facility for education, training and research — with $750,000 in grant funding support from the U.S. Department of Education.
The funding is part of a congressionally directed spending package for West Virginia.

“With this grant, we’re creating a cutting-edge, cloud-based cyber range to train more cybersecurity students,” said Anurag Srivastava, Professor and Chairman of the Lane Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering.
