2 } Faculty Quantity and Quality } Courses Cross-disciplinary Undergraduate and Graduate Lab-Based (Hands-On Requirements) } Equipment Physical equipment and laboratories, if possible Virtual laboratories at least } Students Undergraduate and Graduate American Citizens, if you want to build a reputation with government agencies, or government contractors } Budget Leadership buy-in is critical! } Recognition CAE Credentials

3 } Faculty are needed across multiple disciplines CS, CPE, IS at a minimum ISE and EE desired Cyber Security if you must } Senior and Junior faculty are needed In sufficient quantity to: Build and Teach classes, Propose and Conduct research, Mentor students and faculty Of sufficient quality to: Successfully publish, Be successful with grants, Guide graduate students in meaningful research, Mentor junior faculty to successful careers

4 } Needed in many disciplines Security Policy and Law Computer Security Software Security Hardware Security Network Security Cyber Physical Systems Security, AKA SCADA Security These can be courses in any major where control systems engineering is taught. Digital Forensics } Courses build on basic computational science and engineering courses, such as programming, systems programming, networking, etc.

5 } Hands-on instruction is critical to building a quality cyber security education program Laboratory facilities should be of sufficient quantity and quality to support the expected size of the program. Isolated from the internet, but networked. Computers should be able to boot in any OS, at least in a VM. Hardware must be kept up to date (refreshed regularly) Software must be sufficient to allow students a realistic experience. Commercial or Open Source doesn t matter as much as exposure to as many tools as possible. If physical laboratories and/or hardware are not in the budget, then using virtual laboratories like those available in the RAVE program is acceptable.

6 } Need motivated students who are willing to focus their education in cyber security. Taking one or two courses is not sufficient. The program must allow them to take at least a semester equivalent of courses (12-15 hours), depending on the discipline. Students who are American citizens will get hired by the government if they want it. For industry, my guess is that American citizens is desirable for them as well. } Need undergraduates and graduate students Jobs available at all levels, but the best way to ensure American graduate students is to grow them in undergraduate programs.

7 } New programs cost money, and a commitment of funding needs to be made by the institution. Faculty lines should be dedicated to cyber security across multiple disciplines. Assistantships and scholarships should be made available for cyber security. Laboratories and equipment cost money. New course development costs time = money! } Capacity building grant opportunities should be relentlessly pursued.

8 } CAE-2Y: Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance/Cyber Defense Education for Community Colleges (32) } CAE-IA/CD: Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance/Cyber Defense Education (130) } CAE-R: CAE in Information Assurance/Cyber Defense Research (58) } CAE-Cyber: Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations (13) Seven institutions have CAE-(IA/CD, R, and Cyber) AFIT, Auburn, CMU, MSU, NPS, Northeastern, NYU Poly, Tulsa https://www.nsa.gov/ia/academic_outreach/nat_cae/

9 } Originally known as CAE-IAE (Information Assurance Education) Oldest credential, started in 2000 Most basic credential available to four year institutions } To achieve this designation, curriculum has to be mapped to a detailed set of knowledge units derived from NICE framework. Very time-intensive process (probably at least 100 man-hours for someone very familiar with the curriculum.) Course/Textbook/Syllabus/Required Activity NICE National Initiative for Cyber Security Education

10 } Originally started in 2008 } Must be doctoral granting institutions (or service academies) } Must graduate minimum of three PhDs every five years working in cyber security. } Must have research productive faculty producing at least ten publications every five years. } Students must also publish at least ten publications every five years. } Research funding production also considered. } 20 of 58 schools have only CAE-R https://www.iad.gov/nietp/documents/requirements/cae-r_criteria_newinstitutions.pdf

11 } Very specialized instruction required Outlined in very specific knowledge units Detailed evidence of instruction required } Assessment visit scheduled for those institutions with successful written applications Must prove to visitors that institution actually does what it wrote that it did. } My opinion is that only computer engineering or computer science need apply, unless degree program designed specifically for credential. } Students should be U.S. citizens as they are all destined for employment with the Department of Defense (if they desire). } Students eligible for summer training opportunities. https://www.nsa.gov/academia/nat_cae_cyber_ops/nat_cae_co_criteria.shtml

15 } Serve 1 to 1 payback to: Local, State, or Federal Government State universities count as state government FFRDC (National Labs, Mitre, IDA, TVA, etc.) Tribal Governments } Must serve in Cyber Security position } Must obtain security clearance. } Must perform internship each summer } Must attend Job Fair each year } Obligated to look for a job } Failure to find a job within reasonable period of time results in monetary payback obligation.
