Cybersecurity Center

CEI’s Cybersecurity Center serves as a central hub for joint cybersecurity information, resources, and coordinated efforts to serve the college and community needs. In 2019, CEI faculty, with assistance from advisory committee members and local industry, started pursuing the joint National Security Agency (NSA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE-CD) designation. This is a nationally recognizable program for US Department of Education accredited colleges.  

The Cybersecurity Center, along with the physical cybersecurity training center located in CEI’s Yellowstone Training Center, are poised to be a cornerstone in cybersecurity education for the region. These coordinated efforts include corporate training through WTCE, credit programs through the Cybersecurity and Technology Department, CEI’s IT Services Department, industry members, and collaboration/articulation with Idaho universities and colleges.
