The Institute for Cyber Security is an interdisciplinary institute that will promote and encourage cyber security awareness and practice, both on campus and off, through teaching, research and service activities to enhance people's knowledge of this important field.
Cyber security is broadly defined to include information assurance, cyber forensics, data quality, data completeness, data accuracy, privacy, and other issues related to the storage, transmission, and sharing of data and other information. The Institute involves faculty and students from the colleges of
Business, Education and Communications, Health and Human Services, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Kopchick College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics in dissemination of knowledge, research, and service projects in the general area of information assurance. The Institute will affiliate itself with faculty and students at other institutions such as
community and other four-year colleges to share resources and information in this field and promote the concept and practice of insuring the security and integrity of information.
The Institute for Cyber Security strives to establish leadership in cyber security and information assurance by contributing to the Homeland Defense initiative. IUP does this by:
