National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Two-Year Education

The National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security have reaffirmed St. Philip's College as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Two-Year Education. This designation covers academic years 2014 through 2020.

 Cyber Security Center

The National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) jointly announce the first 44 institutions designated as NSA/DHS National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense. The new CAE CD/ designation is based on updated academic criteria for Cybersecurity education and affords each CAE institution the opportunity to distinguish its strengths in specific CD focus areas. The updated criteria benefit not only the institution, but also students, employers and hiring managers throughout the Nation.

The purpose of the National CAE designation program is to promote higher education in IA and prepare a growing number of IA professionals to meet the need to reduce vulnerabilities in the Nation’s networks. The initial National CAE in CD Education (CAE/IAE) program was started by NSA in 1998, with DHS joining as a partner in 2004 in response to the President’s National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace.
