CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Gula Tech Grant, a grant meant to enhance cyber security across the nation, was recently awarded to the cyber Wyoming alliance in data care.

“So it truly is a triple win. It allows us to help Wyoming’s economy and make sure that it’s resilient. As well as increase workforce capacity and workforce development efforts in the subject of technology and cybersecurity.” said Laura Baker, President of the CyberWyoming Alliance.

The grant worth $100,000 supports the non-profit in cyber security awareness, education, and outreach programs for Wyoming citizens.

The grant also includes topics like public cybersecurity awareness and increasing African American engagement in cyber security.

CyberWyoming Alliance’s winning grant focused on Wyoming’s cybersecurity for small businesses.

The funds will now help train other Wyoming agencies to prepare for the March 2023 Cyber security competition for small businesses.

“Our vision at CyberWyoming and at CyberWyoming Alliance is to have Wyoming be the most cyber secure state in the nation,” said Baker.

Registration for the Cyber security competition will be open for others to apply through May 15. Judging for the competition will happen on Aug. 2022.
