Metris Teams With the University of Arizona

Metris has teamed with The University of Arizona’s Cloud and Autonomic Computing Center (CAC) on AskCyPert, a new and novel program to support cybersecurity education and training. The team has begun work on the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded service where those in need of cybersecurity education and training can leverage academic and research assets through a website or a call center. Resources include a cyber security knowledge base repository, off-the-shelf and custom training modules, cyber security tools, teaching modules, online cyber security support, and a Cybersecurity Lab as a Service (CLaaS). All of the resources will be maintained by the cybersecurity research and education community in an effort to develop educational, training, and mentoring programs to educate students, professionals, and teachers in order to accelerate the development of the required cyber security workforce.
