  CIAS Mission Statement

 

        The Center for Information Assurance Studies (CIAS) at St. Cloud State University (SCSU) aims to facilitate cyber security research, education, and practice. The Center assists in the creation of an interdisciplinary environment for research and study of issues related to information security and addresses major security and privacy issues from technical, business, legal, and policy contexts. CIAS envisions to equip students with a comprehensive understanding in the field of information assurance (IA), both in theory and practice, helping to build a critical knowledgebase for future leaders.

 

        The Center is currently involved in the development of an innovative graduate IA curriculum.  The pursuit of these objectives is largely possible through partnerships with the federal government, businesses, and other educational institutes.  Together we anticipate the improvement in the quality of IA training, research, and education.  Our goals embody St. Cloud State University’s key mission of providing a tradition of excellence and opportunity.
