BLOOMINGTON -

Indiana University has announced a new cybersecurity clinic to combat security threats faced by governments, businesses and individuals. The university says the clinic "will serve as a hub for cyber training in the Midwest."

The clinic is funded by a $340,000 grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and matching funds up to $225,000 from the Indiana Economic Development Corp.

The IU Cybersecurity Clinic, which the university calls the only one of its kind focused on local and state organizations, will work with students from the Kelley School of Business, the Maurer School of Law and the School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering to assist state and local government agencies, not-for-profit organizations and small businesses with taking on cyberattacks, protecting their intellectual property and protecting their privacy.

"Our mission is to foster a community of interdisciplinary cybersecurity professionals," said Scott Shackelford, associate professor of business law and ethics in the IU Kelley School of Business, who chairs the IU Cybersecurity Program and will be the academic director of the IU Cybersecurity Clinic. "We are thrilled by the opportunity to train the next generation of cybersecurity professionals while helping to protect people and organizations around the globe, starting with our communities right here in Indiana."
