Indiana hopes to harness the knowledge of its college students to combat cyber-threats in the state. The Indiana Security Operations Center, a joint program between the state and Purdue University, pairs state employees and students to monitor security incidents. The students learn the trade, and conduct the necessary but lower-level analysis to relieve the workload of more senior staff. When cyber-threats are identified, they are shared with other organizations fighting cyber-terrorism. While the center is currently only open during business hours and staffed with a dozen people, officials hope to bring in many more students to staff the center and create an around-the-clock operation.
