What Are NSA CAE IA/CD Schools

 

In order to promote higher education in cyber security, the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have joined hands together to nominate a number of different institutions as National Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance/Cyber Defense (CAE IA/CD)

 

Any institution that is regionally accredited two year, four year and graduate level are able to apply for this designation.

 

In order to qualify for CAE IA/CD school, the school must meet a number of different general and academic requirements.

The designation is also only valid for 5 academic years after which it must be renewed.

 

Students who choose to go to CAE IA/CD School can get scholarships and grants through the Department of Defense Information Assurance Scholarship program or from the Scholarship Service Program.

 

A Short History of NSA CAE IA/CD Designated Schools

 

The entire concept of information assurance program came into being in 1998. This is when the US government was struggling and looking different ways to increase the number of cyber security professionals for the future. This is when many research and education initiatives were also taken.

 

They began by developing different projects that included:

 

Scholarship for Service Program

NSA National Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE/IAE)

 

The Department of Homeland Security joined hands with the NSA in 2004 after the release of President’s National Strategy to Secure Cyber Space in 2003 was released.

 

The initiatives taken by the government have continued to grow till date.

 

In the year 2008, CAE in IA research program was built from the ground up to promote higher level doctoral research in the cyber security space

Similarly in 2010, the CAE started a two year IA education program that was built to accommodate two year institutions into the list of technical schools and government training centers.

 

The new NSA CAE IA/CD replaced all these programs.
