The National Security Agency and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security have designated ECPI University a national center of academic excellence in cyberdefense education.
To earn the designation, schools must meet stringent criteria and mapping curricula with requirements focusing on course content and relevance, laboratories and faculty involvement.
“This recognition is a stamp of excellence for our program and our faculty,” Keith Morneau, ECPI dean of computer and information science, said in a news release.
ECPI’s cyber and network security program’s applications-based curriculum teaches students how to:
- Administer, manage and troubleshoot hardware, software and services.
- Use cybersecurity measures to protect data and manage personnel.
- Conduct vulnerability analysis and penetration testing.
- Actively monitor and defend networks.
- Create basic security policy and procedures.
