WELCOME TO CCM CENTER FOR CYBER SECURITY
The County College of Morris has been a local and national leader in Information Security education for over two decades. Since 2003 we have been a certifying institution for the NSA’s NSTISSI-4011 National Training Standard for Information Systems Security (INFOSEC) Professionals.
Presently we are in the process of applying to become a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Two-Year Education Program (CAE2Y). Our faculty are recognized nationally as expert educators and have been leaders in setting the direction of our nation’s information security curriculum. The CCM Department of Information Technologies established the CCM Center for Cyber Security to further the mission of educating our future cyber security professionals, increasing awareness for students in other disciplines, and in preparing our greater community to be better cyber citizens.
Welcome back for the Spring 2017 Semester. This semester is full of excitement starting with Data Privacy Day in January, SaferInternet Day in February, and Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition Regionals and Finals.
The Center for Cyber Security will be open this semester on Tuesday and Thursday from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm. Please feel free to drop by any time.
Data Privacy Day is January 28, 2017. We will be hosting a seminar, “Protect Your Digital Life” on January 24 from 12:30 pm to 1:45 pm. The seminar is open to the CCM community and to the community at large. All are welcome. Check the “Upcoming Events
