CSU San Bernardino named National Center for Cybersecurity Education

To help fill a national cybersecurity workforce gap of an estimated 500,000 positions, federal agencies on Wednesday designated California State University, San Bernardino as the National Center for Cybersecurity Education. University leaders and officials from the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security said the university will serve as a national model for cybersecurity education and research while assisting other higher education institutions to train the nation’s future cybersecurity workforce. Funded by a two-year $10.5 million grant, the center plans to establish five regional cybersecurity hubs throughout the United States as it partners with more than 300 other universities and colleges. Colin Wood tuned in to yesterday's announcement.

Universities seek DOD cyber standards exemption

Higher education research and information security leaders have sent a joint letter to the Department of Defense asking they exclude fundamental research conducted at universities from its new information security requirements. The security requirements, released in January, are part of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program, the DOD's new set of cyber standards for all of its 300,000 contractors, from weapons manufacturers to universities doing basic research with defense-dollars. The public nature of universities and their research would make compliance highly difficult, Educause said. Betsy has the details.
