Mission Statement

The mission of the Center for Cyber Security is to provide a collaborative hub of information security expertise, resources, and communications to all those interested in pursuing knowledge in the dynamic, complex field of information assurance.

The Center strives to uphold and advance our mission by serving students in our Master of Science in Information Security System (MSISS) program, as well as complementary undergraduate and graduate programs, both contemporary and forthcoming in nature as we grow. With that same fervor, we activate our mission for the benefit of the communities to which we at Cumberlands are grateful component, such as academic institutions of all levels that understand the criticality of this pursuit; governmental bodies that continually prepare for and thwart attacks; and industry interests that need cutting edge research and solutions in the face of limited in-house resources.
