Center of Excellence in Cyber Security

Against ever evolving cyber-threats the need to graduate students skilled in the concepts and technologies of cyber security is becoming a critical responsibility of academic institutions in order to help preserve the sovereignty of the US and her allies. It is crucial that more undergraduate majors receive education and training that deepens their conceptual and practical understanding of issues in cyber security. In addition to educating computer professionals, undergraduate students of all disciplines should have the opportunity to be exposed to issues regarding computer security.

South Carolina State University’s Center of Excellence in Cybersecurity (CECS) aims to address this problem of the lack of awareness and participation in Cyber Security using a Multi-Tier Approach to Cyber Security Education, Training, and Awareness in the Undergraduate Curriculum (CSETA). South Carolina State University’s Center of Excellence in Cybersecurity located in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science serves as the focal point for all cybersecurity academic activities.
