Introduction to CIISec Academic Partner Programme
CIISec collaborates with leading universities in the field of information and cyber security, to promote the growth of the profession and to provide career paths for those individuals who are the future of the cyber security.
Our Academic Partnership provides an opportunity for CIISec and academic institutions to collaborate and ensure the effective promotion of information security professionalism to staff and students. The award of Academic Partner status aims to recognise the significant base of security-related expertise and activity that exists within academic institutions and to encourage and enable a dialogue between academia and the wider community of security practitioners.
Being an Academic Partner of CIISec shows the rest of the industry that their courses have achieved a course accreditation that meets the industry’s high standard. Universities are encouraged to engage with CIISec’s Community Hubs on events and thought leadership pieces.
