Miami Dade College has submitted a grant proposal titled Cybersecurity Opportunities and Methods that Promote Access and Student Success (COMPASS) for funding by the National Science Foundation NSF, with the full support and collaboration of 4IT, which will be the entity committing the resources to MDC, should the grant be awarded.
“4IT is proud to support Miami Dade College with this very important initiative, and looks forward to supporting the college’s faculty, staff, and students, should this grant be awarded,” stated Raymond Mobayed, 4IT CEO.
4IT is a South Florida based IT service company that specializes in the secure management of Information Technology infrastructure. With customers in the commercial, non-profit, and government sectors, 4IT provides a full suite of IT support services including infrastructure management, IT helpdesk support, and advanced project engineering for premise and cloud implementations. During the past 5 years as cybersecurity has emerged to become the most significant risk to IT operations, 4IT built a highly-integrated set of IT management and cybersecurity tools to address this specific risk for our own customers. With more than 12 years of engineering labor already invested, 4IT continues to refine, test, and implement this advanced tool solution to address the IT management and cybersecurity needs of our domestic and international clients.
In relation to this project, 4IT will support Miami Dade College by:
· Contributing resources to support the education and career training program strategies.
· Assisting in curriculum development to ensure alignment with local industry needs.
· Providing mentors and speakers that can guide and advise future students.
· Providing internship opportunities for future students to gain real job experience while they finish their degrees.
“We look forward to working with Miami Dade College and hope that its COMPASS project receives favorable review and consideration from the National Science Foundation,” added Mr. Mobayed.
