FCC Launches Cybersecurity Pilot Program for Schools and Libraries

The program is part of Chair Rosenworcel’s “Learn Without Limits” initiative.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted a three-year, $200 million pilot program to enhance cybersecurity for K-12 schools and libraries. This program will collect data on effective cybersecurity measures and address increasing threats to broadband networks to protect students’ digital learning environments from cyberattacks.

The FCC stated, “The pilot program will allow the Commission to gather the data needed to better understand whether and how universal service funds could be used to support the cybersecurity needs of schools and libraries and to share lessons learned with our federal partners to jointly combat this growing problem.“

Part of Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel’s Learn Without Limits initiative, this program focuses on bridging the Homework Gap by ensuring internet connectivity.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Chair Rosenworcel and members of the FCC as they support efforts to ensure internet connectivity in schools and libraries.
  • For wisdom for FCC commissioners as they determine the programs and initiatives to fund.
