MIDWEST CITY, Okla. —Rose State College in Midwest City is receiving a nearly $900,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce to expand its cybersecurity program.
Officials told KOCO 5 the grand not only will help the college build a cybersecurity center but will meet the increasing demand for cybersecurity experts. Rose State College President Jeanie Webb said the cybersecurity program will be expanded to serve more students, saying the need is so high that people who graduate from the program are almost guaranteed a job out of school.
"Just think about Tinker Air Force Base alone. Think about how important cyber is for them, for all their airplanes and breaking into anything military," Webb said. "Think about banking and people getting into your personal stuff."
