Kennesaw State University's Michael J. Coles College of Business is home to the only undergraduate degree in Information Security in the state. Our majors graduate ready to go to work in industry or at government agencies equipped with a solid business understanding of information protection, risk management, information security management and policy as well as a sound preparation in the basic skills of IT Security - network defense, system hardening and vulnerability analysis.
Kennesaw’s Center for Information Security Education, staffed by Coles Information Security faculty, is also the host to the Southeast Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition. This competition, as part of the national CCDC, hosts the top 8 academic information security student teams in the Southeast at a competition in April at KSU. These teams will have already outperformed over 20 of their peers in a virtual qualifier in February. In order to make the competition a success, we need the help and support of local businesses. The competition has a formal sponsorship program where businesses can provide direct financial contributions, in-kind donations, and volunteers to assist in staffing the competition as judges and well-qualified penetration testers. Those organizations providing financial contributions qualify to participate in an on-site recruitment event with the over 100 security students from institutions throughout the Southeast. All sponsorships must be completed prior to the April competition to receive full benefits. If you or your organization would like to know more you can visit the competition web site at www.seccdc.org, and its sponsor page at https://www.seccdc.org/sponsor.html. If you’re interested in supporting the event, please contact the SECCDC Director, Dr. Mike Whitman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
