Center for Cybersecurity Education

    Center for Cybersecurity Education

    Director of the center is Dr. Derek Mohammed.

    The Saint Leo University Center for Cybersecurity Education (CCE) was established in 2014 by the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems in the College of Business at Saint Leo University. Our main objectives of the center are:

    • Enriching cybersecurity education by strengthening the undergraduate and graduate curricula.
    • Creating knowledgeable and skilled workforce to supply a steady stream of cybersecurity professionals to serve various sectors including government and private industries.
    • Encouraging and supporting faculty and student engagement in applied cybersecurity research.

    Our academic programs include both undergraduate and graduate degrees, which are supported by a state of the art cybersecurity lab, a cyberforensic lab, and two traditional computer science labs. Graduates from our programs are equipped with knowledge and experience to pursue careers in the IT industry or advanced research degrees.

    Faculty and students conduct research on a wide range of topics including cryptography, database security, information systems security, mobile security, and network security.

    The National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security have designated Saint Leo University as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE) through 2021.
