Cyber Intelligence and Security Center (CISC)

Our adversary in cyber space evolves at internet speeds with relationships, access to vulnerability information, recruitment among under employed but skilled computer workers … The challenge to understand, defend, discover and mitigate is ongoing.

The Center Researchers and Students utilize the computing resources in the Cybersecurity Lab and the Arizona Cyber Warfare Range.  Topics of interest include: Software defined networks, Aviation cybersecurity, Intrusion detection systems, Open Source Intelligence (OSINT).  Students are involved in the Center through groups such as CyberEye, ISORT, Capture the Flag competitions in addition to involvement in research and consulting opportunities.

C Complex — Cyber activities require understanding of multiple disciplines

I Intelligence — Awareness of the capabilities, trends, practices of the adversary is critical

S Success — Security is measured in speed of response, reduction in losses,

C Collaboration — The Center brings together experts from academia, industry and government

Housed in the College of Security and Intelligence, the Center is multi-disciplinary and includes adjunct faculty, guest and remote subject matter experts (SME).  This center collaborates with the CyBASE Center in Daytona Beach and is funded in part by federal, state and local sources in addition to University support.
