CREC provided talent demand information and insights to the Carolina Cyber Network (CCN), a coalition of colleges and universities led by Fayetteville Technical Community College and the Montreat College. CCN will use the data to expand and improve the cybersecurity talent pipeline through engagement and alignment with industry demand. The project sought to supplement industry demand data with an assessment of Network strengths and weaknesses as well as of Network opportunities to expand and respond to market demands more nimbly.
