Welcome to Hennepin Technical College's CyberDefense Information Center

It is important to become cyber-aware and protect you, your family, and your business against ever-growing cyber threats. The Information Technology and Cyber Defense department at HTC wants to help educate our local communities about cyber threats and what to do about them.
