Orlando, FL (November 12, 2013) – Florida Cyber Alliance, Inc. took a huge step this week, preparing for the new year early by launching its new name and brand. Formerly the Central Florida Cyber Security Community of Practice (CFCSCoP), Florida Cyber Alliance is using this opportunity to define a brand that better reflects the non-profit organization’s commitment to cyber security throughout Florida.
Earlier this year, Florida Cyber Alliance hosted its first “Cyber Camp” at Daytona State College in Daytona Beach, Fla. Forty-three students took part in the camp over three days, with participants taking part in classes, labs, and challenges pertaining to Security Fundamentals, Operating System and Network Security, and Cyber Defense.
The Cyber Camp was the first of its kind in Florida, garnering support from Daytona State College, the National Science Foundation, the Air Force Association’s CyberPatriot program, Tripwire, Inc., No Starch Press, The Open Web Application Security Project, AEgis Technologies Group, and Dynamic Animation Systems, Inc.
“After the successful launch of the organization this summer with our first Cyber Camp, we wanted to re-brand with a focus on our core mission of fostering continuous and reliable partnerships for Cyber Security education,” stated Florida Cyber Alliance Vice President, Lee V. Mangold. “Moving forward, Florida Cyber Alliance will continue to work alongside established organizations, spreading our influence throughout the state of Florida. Our new name emphasizes this goal for the organization going forward.”
Florida Cyber Alliance continues to develop new and exciting opportunities for cyber security enthusiasts and practitioners young and old to hone their skills and enhance their talents for 2014 and beyond.
