The Security Center of Excellence, set to open in spring, is targeting to educate security staff about protecting data at the state and local levels, and in public schools — and may eventually spread outside Pennsylvania’s borders.

In the face of ever-present and increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity threats, a new entity in central Pennsylvania is a public-private partnership effort to tackle such threats head-on.
The Harrisburg University Security Center of Excellence opened in November, and is developing security curriculum aimed at boosting the skills of security specialists in the area’s government sector.
“What this is going to really allow us to do is to educate staff in their professional career development but, more importantly, help us combat the ever-changing landscape of cybersecurity,” said Pennsylvania CIO Tony Encinias.
