the NCC

The National Cybersecurity Center is headquartered in Colorado Springs, CO. We are a 501(c)(3) that was established in 2016 by former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper to advance cybersecurity education and awareness.

We are home to a robust K-12 education program, adult education opportunities, a 50-state legislator cyber hygiene training campaign, as well as the first Space ISAC.

Through this Center, we are excited to take our mission to another level here in Colorado by bringing together local, state and federal cyber resources to improve Colorado’s cybersecurity posture and make it a safer place to live, work and play.



The Colorado Cyber Resource Center serves as a repository for tools and guidance shared from local cyber professionals who understand the Colorado environment; a connection point to free state and federal resources that can help improve your cyber defenses; and a network of shared expertise and support from other local professionals.

Coming in the fall, we look forward to launching a statewide cyber range to help bridge the education-workforce gap in cybersecurity in Colorado. We are also excited to launch PISCES in Colorado – a program dedicated to equipping higher education students with real world skills in network monitoring.
