The ORTSOC program provides us a knowledgeable and capable additional layer of security that is invaluable to our small jurisdiction. Having support from a regional partner, knowing someone is monitoring, and providing real-life experience to the future IT generation goes along with our jurisdiction's values. The ORTSOC partnership benefits everyone involved!

- Information Services Director, Small City

We really appreciate ORTSOC and being a part of this program. We serve a lot of economically disadvantaged youth in the schools we support and don't have the personnel or resources to properly monitor cyber security in our IT resources. We are very grateful for ORTSOC to fill this need in [our county]. Dave and his team have been great to work with in rolling out their services and we hope to work with them for a long time to come.

- IT Director, Small School District

We are thrilled to partner with OSU and the ORTSOC, allowing [our college] to continue its journey towards a more mature cybersecurity stance that enables a safe and secure infrastructure for our faculty, staff, and students. We are looking forward to continuing to find ways to support our own communities as well as ensure students get real-world experience in helping organizations stay safe.
