K-State's Center for Information and Systems Assurance has been named a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Research. The designation is made by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and National Security Agency and is effective through 2015.
"This designation speaks volumes about the cybersecurity and high-assurance software research taking place at K-State," said Kirk Schulz, K-State president. "Our researchers are among the best minds in the country when it comes to information and computer security."
K-State's designation as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Research -- or CAE-R -- became official at a ceremony June 8 at the National Electronics Museum in Baltimore, Md.
