Governor John Carney recently announced the launch of a new program called "NSA Day of Cyber."
The announcement comes during National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
The program will serve as an online career exploration tool for students to test drive cyber security.
It will highlight the importance of cyber security training across all lines of government, business, and citizens to strengthen our readiness and response.
Representatives of the program say the program is needed now more than ever with the rise of cyber security crime.
Elayne Starkey, the Chief Security Officer with the Delaware Department of Technology and Information, said, "We need a talented, we need a pipeline of the future cyber security professionals so we want to start early. In this case we're offering it starting in 8th grade and all the way up to college students who are participating."
