We use technology every day, but just how safe is our personal information online? At what cost do we use the convenience of the internet? You don’t have to read the news long to see that as a society we are losing the battle in cyberspace. Malicious cyber activity costs our national economy billions of dollars each year. So, how do we protect our citizens? And how do we stop the attacks while protecting the rights of individuals?
The answer: Cybersecurity.
The Cedarville University Center for the Advancement of Cybersecurity was created to advance the study of cybersecurity. Cybersecurity, which seeks to protect the rights of individuals and organizations in cyberspace, is now a crucial component to the proper functioning of the U.S. economy and to the safeguarding of our freedoms. Cedarville University’s cyber-trained faculty members; strong cyber academic programs; close proximity to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, a major hub of cybersecurity activity; and our positive reputation among cybersecurity communities in academia, industry, and government position us well to provide leadership in this growing field.
