Cybersecurity Industry Advisory Board
During August of 2022 the Center for Cyber Leadership, formed its first Cybersecurity Industry Advisory Board. This group of experts meet once per semester in order to receive industry expert feedback on existing programs, curriculum, and student resources. Our goal is to engage in continuous improvement and increase our graduates’ opportunities for a successful career in Computer Information Systems and Security. The advisory board is composed of ten industry experts in the areas of information technology, security engineering, cloud security, information security, and penetration testing.
