The Center for Cybersecurity Education (CCE) has been established to serve as the focal point for cybersecurity curriculum and practice at WVU. The Center for Cybersecurity Education is organized and hosted by the Department of Computer and Information Systems and supported by faculty across multiple disciplines at WVU. The mission of the CCE center is to provide cybersecurity education program guidance and oversight, general cyber defense information, and opportunities of cybersecurity research, collaboration, and outreach for students, faculty, and other organizations.
This designated center must have an external board of advisors – local/national
industry professionals, faculty from other institutions, etc. to provide programmatic
guidance over the activities of the center and the NCAE-C program as a whole. This
board provides a connection between the program(s), this center, college/department,
and the local community. The external board of advisors can be shared with other
programs in the college/department.
