Organizers have submitted a proposal to the Alabama Legislature outlining plans for the state-of-the-art facility. The hope is that it could be used by businesses, governments and others for data security training, degree programs and certification. It would include public meeting space as well as dedicated instruction areas for each of the participating universities.
