Dr. Doug Twitchell and Dr. Glen Sagers of the School of Information Technology have been awarded a grant of $56,000.00 by the Department of Defense (DoD). The purpose of the grant is to fund the development of an infrastructure to host a Central Illinois High School Cyber Defense Competition and recruit potential students to the School of Information Technology. The resulting infrastructure will also make it possible for the School of Information Technology to virtualize Information Assurance & Security laboratories and share those resources with other institutions.
