State Initiative

Recognizing the state's cybersecurity needs and opportunities, the 2013 Florida Legislature requested this report to provide a plan and budget to create the Florida Center for Cybersecurity, to be housed under the leadership of the University of South Florida.

The charge: Secure Florida's place as the national leader in this burgeoning field. USF, through collaboration with its sister institutions across the State University System and private partners, can meet the challenge. The plan and proposed investments laid out in this report provide the blueprint for Florida to develop cybersecurity as a central pillar of its economic future.
