Brief history

The CNM Tech Skills Training Team was initially created in February of 2012 in order to provide patrons of the Career Network Ministry with free technology training. Both the name and inspiration came from Dr. Mallard Owen, then, a member of the CNM's leadership circle.
The most of training sessions concentrated on office suites, web development, and project management. During the hands-on training, the participants utilized partners' software.
In summer of 2013, the Team received hundreds of yearly subscriptions for Microsoft enterprise-level products, particularly SharePoint Online. In order to run its own platform for the trainees, the Team started acting as a technology startup and, thus, became the CNM Tech Team.
There were several attempts to land new partners when the subscriptions ended in 2014. These attempts were successful in the short-run, but sooner or later the partners pursued other opportunities and abandoned the engagement. In 2016, the Team lost almost all of its Cyber assets as a result of the server collapse. Next year, the Team destroyed its own slowly-developed private cloud to reduce the expenses.
In winter of 2018, a new concept of providing CNM patrons with computer services was developed, so the Team became the CNM Computer Services. When those services were officially named CNM Cyber, the Team acquired its current name.
