  1. Howard University Cybersecurity Research Center Wayne Patterson Director of the Cybersecurity Research Center November 28, 2011

  2. Designation as a National Center of Excellence In June of 2011, Howard University and its Cybersecurity Research Center were designated by the National Security Agency as a: Cemter of Academic Excellence in Informance Assurance Education Known as “CAE/IAE” Howard joins about 125 four-year institutions with this designation: see http://www.nsa.gov/ia/academic_outreach/nat_cae/institutions.shtml We will show what we had to demonstrate to gain this certification … and what this will mean for Howard

  3. Requirements to Meet We had to demonstrate our capability in: 1. Outreach/Collaboration 2. Center for Information Assurance (IA) Education 3. IA Academic Program is Robust and Active 4. IA as a Multidisciplinary Science 5. Practice of IA Throughout the University 6. Student-based IA Research 7. Number of IA Faculty and Course Load 8. Faculty Active in Current IA Practice and Research

  4. Outreach/Collaboration • a. Shared curriculum • Created entire program at Voorhees • b. Reciprocity of credits • With 34 institutions, including 12 MSIs • c. Sponsorship of workshops • 4, two NSF-sponsored • d. CAE Collaboration • Seminars at George Mason and Stevens • e. Community outreach
