Florida Center for Cybersecurity

The Florida Center for Cybersecurity (FC2) positions Florida as the national leader in cybersecurity through education; innovative, interdisciplinary research; and community engagement.

To achieve this mission, we work to

  • Create thousands of high-paying jobs in the state's cybersecurity industry;
  • Serve as a facilitator for cybersecurity education;
  • Enhance Florida's cybersecurity workforce, including reintegrating military veterans by utilizing their specialized skills and training;
  • Act as a cybersecurity clearinghouse for statewide business and higher education communities to help mitigate cybersecurity threats, and optimizing investment to eliminate unnecessary duplication; and
  • Attract new financial, healthcare, transportation, utility, and defense companies to Florida.
