1 Goal National Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance/Cyber Defense for Two-Year Education (CAE2Y) Program Criteria for Measurement Jointly Sponsored by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) The goal of the CAE IA/CD for Two-Year Education program is to proactively increase our understanding of robust IA/CD technology, policy and practices that will enable our Nation to effectively prevent and respond to a catastrophic cyber event. This program will contribute significantly to the advancement of state-of-the-art IA/CD knowledge and practice. Vision The vision for the CAE2Y program is to: 1. Provide programs that commit to excellence in the field of Information Assurance and Cyber Defense education at community and technical college and government training institutions. 2. Provide innovative, comprehensive and multidisciplinary education and training in the IA/CD field. 3. Strengthen the cybersecurity workforce by providing IA/CD education and training through degree and certification programs at community and technical colleges and government training centers. 4. Build an effective education pipeline model with K 12 schools to encourage students at an early age to enter IA/CD fields of study. 5. Provide the Nation with a pipeline of qualified students poised to become the future skilled technical workforce. 6. Continuously improve the quality of IA/CD programs, curriculum, faculty, students and other institutions. CAE 2Y Program Eligibility and Summary The CAE2Y Program is open to current regionally accredited two-year community colleges, technical schools, state or federally endorsed IA/Cybersecurity training centers or U.S. Government IA/Cybersecurity training centers. All institutions must hold current regional accreditation as outlined by the Department of Education (http://ope.ed.gov/accreditation). Overall CAE2Y requirements are: Demonstration of program outreach, student development, IA/CD Center establishment and maintenance, IA/CD faculty, and student curriculum path. Successful mapping of the institution s curriculum to the two-year core Knowledge Units (KUs). Completion of these requirements will recognize the institution with designation at the institution level as a NSA/DHS National Center of Academic Excellence for Information Assurance/Cyber Defense for Two-Year Education (CAE2Y). Institutions shall demonstrate that students can successfully complete the CAE2Y course of study and receive recognition on a transcript, diploma, etc. CAE 2Y Criteria Page 1 September 2013

2 Focus Area (Optional): 2014 NSA/DHS National CAE 2Y Criteria All CAEs have the option to apply for one or more CAE IA/CD Focus Area designations. The criteria include: Successful mapping of the institution s curriculum to all of the KUs identified in the Focus Area. Demonstration that a student can reasonably complete the necessary course of study to include all KUs identified in the Focus Area. The institution must provide student certificates to those that complete the FA course of study. The certificates must clearly identify the specific Focus Area achieved. Knowledge Units: The KU mapping will require the institution to address how it meets each Core and chosen Optional KU. An institution has many ways to demonstrate how a program meets/fulfills a KU. Some examples include: course syllabus, course outline, student assignments, lab assignment, modules in a course/collection of courses, and certifications (CCNA, CISSP, etc.). Required information will include: course syllabi, course outlines and justifications showing where and how the KUs are addressed in the curriculum. One course may fulfill the requirements of multiple KUs, and multiple courses may fulfill the requirements of a single KU. Program Evaluation: Institutions will be evaluated by CAE Program staff with assistance from Subject Matter Experts. The last phase of the criteria may be an on-site evaluation focused on course content, course relevance, laboratory facilities, and faculty involvement. CAE2Y Designation: Successful institutions will be designated as a NSA/DHS National Center of Academic Excellence for Information Assurance/Cyber Defense for Two-Year Education (CAE2Y). Due to the requirement to have all institutions designated by 2014, designation periods granted during this designation cycle will range from three to six years from the institution s application. This will allow a more distributed range of re-applications in the future. Subsequent cycles will revert to a five-year cycle. The initial designation period will be dependent upon timing of the application, with allowances for changes by the program office. Future criteria (including KUs and FAs) will continue to be reviewed annually and strengthened as appropriate to keep pace with the evolving nature of IA/CD. Designation as a CAE2Y does not carry a commitment of funding from NSA or DHS. CAE 2Y Criteria Page 2 September 2013
