Today, as the new Director of CIAE, I welcome you to the City University of Seattle’s Center for Information Assurance Education (CIAE), an NSA/DHS designated Center of Academic Excellence (CAE) with a unique approach to the 21st Century technology & computing education. Two years ago, I was a member of the CIAE Advisory Board, as Dr. Sam Chung convened the group during the re-designating CityU as a CAE – Cyber Defense (CD).
In the span of two years, much has changed at CityU. Our CIAE is embedded into the School of Computing & Technology (STC), which officially became the newest school at CityU in January 2020. Lead by Dean Sam Chung, STC’s CIAE’s holistic systems-thinking design methodology considers Cybersecurity a design element, not an afterthought
