Initial funding for C3 was provided by Montreat College and in 2019 the State of North Carolina provided additional funding. The Center’s vison is to be a national demonstration resource for developing community cyber awareness, ethical cybersecurity professionals, and public/private partnerships to advance the “state of practice” in cybersecurity.
