Introduction to CIISec Academic Partner Programme
CIISec collaborates with leading universities in the field of information and cyber security, in order to promote growth of the profession and to provide career paths for those individuals who are the future of the cyber security profession.
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.
Partnering with CIISec accredits the organisations courses to industry standard. It gives opportunities to the organisations to work with CIISec on events and thought leadership and is the starting point for students to take up individual CIISec membership. The joining process is free and requires an application accompanied by CVs of the lecturers delivering the courses for assessment.
