Montgomery College Cyber Center

Montgomery College’s new state of the art Cybersecurity lab was built using a combination of Montgomery College and U.S. Department of Labor, TAACCCT program funds. The lab space itself is designed using modular work tables, each with their own 46 inch LED monitor and PC, which linked to the instructor’s workstation to help aid in instruction. Students can also bring their own devices to connect with the instructor and each other. These work spaces are movable and can be arranged in a variety of different configurations to suit the needs of the users. This lab space is also intended to be used by our business and industry partners to hold demonstrations and training sessions for their staff. In the future, Montgomery College plans to participate in cyber security competitions with other colleges throughout the country.


The infrastructure that supports the lab space is on a stand-alone network from the college so that students an engage in real world security exercises without affecting the operations of the college. The technology behind the scenes allows for up to 200 virtual desktops to be built and 100 servers, both virtual and remote, to facilitate the learning and skills building exercises to prepare our students for industry recognized certifications in a number of different IT specialties, such as Certified Ethical Hacker, Cisco Certified Network Associate, and CompTIA Network +, Security +, A+. Additionally, Montgomery College is offering courses in digital forensics using both the FTK and EnCase software tools where our students learn how to preserve, recover and analyze digital information to be used in investigations and security audits.
