Cyber Security: A Critical Need

Computer systems have a substantial impact in nearly every setting - retail, health care, finance, transportation, government, communication, and education - and ensuring the security of those computer systems is critical.

Mission: 

The NWA Center for Cyber Security strives to improve and develop curriculum to increase the number of information assurance and security professionals in the workforce, improve the skills of existing professionals, improve diversity among information assurance and security professionals, and advance the knowledge and practice of information assurance and cyber security.
