The Cybersecurity Program at IUP, along with the Institute for Cyber Security, has established a Cybersecurity Industry Advisory Board (CIAB) to regularly review our offerings and provide recommendations on how we can improve the cybersecurity curriculum so that our graduates will better meet the needs of the industry. CIAB board members are cybersecurity experts who are leaders on various sectors of the industry. CIAB members, along with IUP cybersecurity faculty, hold one meeting every academic semester to review the cybersecurity curriculum and discuss recommendations for improvements.

Below is information about CIAB memberships and recent activities.
