The bill to boost cybersecurity job training programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) has been signed into law on Tuesday.
According to officials, this new law is a part of the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022, and it requires that 50% of the funds from the Dr. David Satcher Cybersecurity Education Grant Program go to HBCUs, tribal, and minority serving institutions in order to support greater diversity and equality of opportunity in the cybersecurity field.
The Dr. David Satcher Cybersecurity Education Grant Program was created by the Cybersecurity Opportunity Act which was put together by Senator Jon Ossoff and Representative Hank Johnson.
