Widely-publicized breaches such as those affecting TJX Corporation Target, Home Depot, and IRS records have become all too common and put the confidentiality of citizens’ and governments’ information at risk.  The demand for individuals with expertise in preventing and investigating these attacks will only continue to increase as society’s dependence on information systems grows and society’s enemies become ever more adept at bypassing information security measures.

Armstrong’s Center for Applied Cyber Education (CACE) is a state-of-the art facility offering an interdisciplinary approach to cyber education.  Under the auspices of the university’s Department of Computer Science and Information Technology, in collaboration with the Department of Criminal Justice, Social and Political Science and the Cyber Forensics Division of Armstrong’s Police Department, students will learn to secure data, investigate intrusions, and prosecute cyber-crimes from Day One.  Forget the traditional “war games.”  The CACE has developed red team vs. blue team multi-tiered simulations that pull together the full spectrum of cyber education in a single exercise.  Through the CACE, students receive first-class instruction that prepares them to prevent and investigate cyber-attacks on networks and systems throughout the world.
