TROY, Ala. (AP) - Troy University is getting $350,000 in federal
funding to fight cybercrime.
Republican Sen. Richard Shelby of Tuscaloosa worked to get the
federal appropriation for Troy's Computer Forensics Institute and
Shelby said Tuesday the university will use the funding to
enhance awareness of cybercrime techniques, providing training on
computer forensics and electronic security systems, and develop a
lab for examining cybercrimes.
Shelby is the ranking member of the Senate Appropriations
Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice and Science.
