Colorado Cyber Resource Center (CCRC)
The National Cybersecurity Center (NCC) is excited to launch the Colorado Cyber Center in the summer of 2021 with the intent to accelerate targeted cyber support to local public entities, education institutions and SLTT’s across Colorado.
The mission of the Colorado Cyber Center is to create a low-barrier entry point for accessing cyber resources in support of the State of Colorado and to develop a platform for advancing cyber education and workforce development opportunities.
There are lots of resources out there around cybersecurity, and it can be a bit overwhelming – especially as you are just starting your journey towards becoming a more cyber-safe organization, or individual. To help, the CCRC is building out links to prioritize some of the different resources as well as tap into our local network of experts to protect against ongoing critical issues.
