About the CCTC
The California Cyber Training Complex (CCTC) is a robust, multi-agency effort to protect California through enhanced cybercrime forensics and state-wide tactical response training. Our partners are the California National Guard and Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.
As an extension of Cal Poly’s Cybersecurity Center, the CCTC aims to educate the next generation cyber workforce and provide faculty and students with a new, hands-on research and learning environment.
The novel partnership between academia, industry and government offers immediate opportunities to local law enforcement, military personnel, and even Cal Poly students to help California better protect its citizens.
The CCTC serves as an extended Learn by Doing space for Cal Poly students, where they can explore new cyber technologies and train and test tactics side by side law enforcement professionals and cyber forensics experts. The program offers an environment for cyber defense innovation through advanced study and basic and applied research on emerging issues and technical challenges, helping to shape California’s cyber standards and practices.
