Cyber Security Center of Excellence

About Us

The St. John’s University Cybersecurity Center is the central point of information with respect to the multidisciplinary research, education, training, and practice in the field of Cybersecurity.  This university-wide center has been created with the vision to provide current and future St. John’s students with Cybersecurity program guidance and general information, as well as to promote collaboration and interaction with other students, faculty, and programs within St. John’s University and the Cybersecurity community as a whole.

St. John’s University and the B.S. program in Cyber Security Systems are currently undergoing efforts towards the designation of becoming National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE).
