“With the vision of your team and the support of this Board, we are confident Grambling is prepared to educate cybersecurity professionals the market is demanding,” said system board chair Al Perkins. “These graduates will be equipped with highly sought-after skills to protect us as technology becomes more prevalent in our daily lives.”

The new program at the university was led by GSU faculty member, researcher and a member of the Louisiana Cybersecurity Commission, Dr. Yenumula B. Reddy, according to a press release.

The next step in the in-statement process will be to gain approval from the Louisiana Board of Regents in order to begin the cybersecurity program’s first cohort next fall.
