The Cyber Bytes Foundation (CBF) has partnered with the Virginia Tech Richmond Center to address workforce development needs in Stafford County and the surrounding region.


The partnership includes the development and implementation of programs in data analytics and cybersecurity. These Continuing Education Units (CEUs) courses will bring Virginia Tech faculty to the classrooms of the Quantico Cyber Hub. The state-of-the-art equipment and technology offered at the facility will be utilized by participants as they work together to strengthen and develop a next-gen cyber workforce.


“Partnerships such as this are a prime example of how Virginia Tech continues to fulfill its global land-grant responsibility by bringing the university’s expertise in fields such as data analytics and cybersecurity to residents who want to transform their careers with these in-demand skills,” said Susan Johnstad, director of the Virginia Tech Richmond and Newport News Centers.


“We are thrilled to welcome the faculty and staff of Virginia Tech to the Quantico Cyber Hub in partnership with the Cyber Bytes Foundation. It is an honor to help extend the mission of the Virginia Tech motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve) as they expand and collaborate with the residents of the Northern Virginia region. Together we will work to enhance developers and the cyber workforce.”


Part of Virginia Tech Outreach and International Affairs, the Richmond Center helps drive innovation by sharing the knowledge resources of the university and providing educational opportunities with faculty members.
