Founded and manage the ongoing activities of this organization for the last two years. The CCIA draws its membership from all four colleges in FDU and is the focal point of cyber defense education at FDU.


2015: Completed mapping of FDU courses to the NSA & DHS specified Knowledge Units (KU) which helped FDU getting re-designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE/CDE) by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) valid through the academic year 2020.

2014: Proposed and got CEPC approvals to offer three new courses and two new concentrations in BSCS and BSIT programs.

May 2014: Planned, invited speakers and participated in the second Cybersecurity Symposium at FDU held in the Lenfell Hall.

May 2013: Planned, invited speakers and helped organize the first Cybersecurity Symposium at FDU.held in the Metropolitan campus.

2013: Applied for and got FDU designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE/IAE) by the NSA and the DHS.

2012: Mapped FDU cyber courses to CNSS4011 and CNSS4013 training standards.
