California State University, San Bernardino - Cyber Security Center

California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) is a national leader in cyber security education. Due to the excellent curriculum and faculty expertise in cyber security, CSUSB has been designated as a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security since 2008. As a reflection of this excellence, CSUSB was just designated as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense/Information Assurance through 2021. We were further recognized for our specialty areas in Cyber Investigations and Network Security Administration.

Business Administration with a Cyber Security concentration was one of the first cyber security tracks in California. We have now expanded to include Criminal Justice, Public Administration, and National Security Studies. The Information and Decisions Sciences (IDS) department received cyber security grants from the National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, and other federal and state agencies. These grants allow us to offer full ride scholarships and help make cyber security programs available across disciplines at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

From our award-winning Cyber Defense teams to well equipped cyber security lab, CSUSB will help you receive the education you need to succeed in the field.

INSuRE Class

Would you like to work with a national laboratory, a federal agency, or the private industry to work on pressing issues in cybersecurity? The INSuRE Class provides a student team the opportunity to work with a technical directory from a national lab, a federal agency, or the private industry to work on important cybersecurity issues. Issues range from vehicle security to reverse engineering malware.  Students from all disciplines, including information systems and technology, computer science and engineering, mathematics, criminal justice, public administration, political sciences, etc are encouraged to take the course.

Last year a team of six students worked with Argonne National Laboratory to research connected vehicles. The class was not only hands-on, with students actually diving under the hood of a Volkswagon Beetle to look at connected devices, but also full of research, special guests, and presentations.

Students that take the course will also be eligible to attend an eight-week summer camp at Purdue University.

Web Systems Security 

Web Systems Security

Are you interested in learning about Web Security? Web Systems Security provides students an overview of common web vulnerabilities including SQL Injection, Cross-Site Scripting, Indirect Object Reference, and more! In this class, you will learn how to exploit these vulnerabilities as well as how to prevent them. 

This class is unique to the CSUSB campus. Offered in partnership with Facebook and Codepath, this course has high visibility among the Facebook staff and provides a number of extracurricular activities for students. Last year, several people attended DEFCON 25, Enigma, F8, and WiCys. In addition, for this upcoming year, we have 7 students attending DEFCON 26 and a planned trip to Facebook!

While this class is difficult, the rewards are tenfold. Many of the students that took this class in Spring 2018 learned so much within the 10-week time span!
