Partnerships – Industry & Government

Our Information Security and Intelligence (ISI) program has academic partnerships with numerous cybersecurity vendors and other technological solution providers.

These academic partnerships help to bridge the gap between academia and industry by allowing students to gain hands-on experience using best-of-breed enterprise-grade solutions. Furthermore, these partnerships help us to address the cybersecurity talent gap head-on by giving students opportunities to acquire skills and experience using the same tools, tactics, and techniques used in industry.

ISI is very grateful for the generosity and support of our partners and their help in training the next generation of cybersecurity professionals!
