Lockheed Martin teams with UCF on cybersecurity lab as tech talent demand grows


    University of Central Florida is creating a Cyber Innovation Lab to help train more students in cybersecurity, thanks to a big contribution from Lockheed Martin Corp.

    Lockheed Martin on Nov. 27 announced it would provide $1.5 million to UCF to develop a 970 square-foot lab that will serve as a practice center for the college’s three-time national champion Cyber Defense Club, as well as more than 350 cyber program students. The announcement was made during the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) — the world’s largest modeling and simulation conference — at Orange County Convention Center.
