As cybercrimes have increased over the years, the nation is facing a shortage of cybersecurity workers. With this realization, Iowa State University (ISU) and Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) have partnered together to create the Iowa Cyber Hub, a regional facility where companies can work with ISU and DMACC on cybersecurity issues. The overarching goal of this partnership is to increase the number of cybersecurity professionals in Iowa.
The Iowa Cyber Hub also hopes to inspire younger generations to engage in cybersecurity education and training to help central Iowa. DMACC will eventually create an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in Cyber Security to help people get entered into the cybersecurity field.
