Center for Cyber Security
The Florida A&M University Center for Cyber Security (FCCS) recognizes that as technology advances and the world becomes more and more computer oriented, the tasks of Cyber Defense (CD) and Information Assurance (IA) becomes progressively more challenging. FCCS focuses on education, research and development for all aspects of information security, including systems vulnerability assessment, theory development and formalization methodologies, and mobile computing. FCCS is aligned with Florida A&M University values and supportive of the Florida A&M University mission to:
- Help students realize their educational goals.
- Provide intellectual challenges and undergraduate research opportunities.
- Value and promote teaching, scholarship and active learning.
- Encourage experimentation, innovation and creativity.
FCCS represents a response to a national need. President Obama states in his Cybersecurity Legislative Proposal that "cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation." [Cybersecurity Legislative Proposal, May 12, 2011
