We're a group of 18 academic institutions with various backgrounds and levels of expertise. We're here to help other academic, business and governmental agencies secure the nations infrastructure by providing a forum that will consistently improve the cybersecurity education in our region.
The founding members University of Detroit Mercy, Eastern Michigan University, and Regis University have been recognized by the National Security Agency as Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE) and formed a coalition in 2006. Along the way we have added the following CAE's: Walsh College, Ferris State University, Davenport University and the University of Missouri-St. Louis. With the help of our founders at Detroit Mercy, we also have international partnerships with London South Bank University and University of Warwick in the United Kingdom.
Our Founding Community College partner Washtenaw helped us bring together the following Community College members in order of membership: Henry Ford College, Lansing Community College, Oakland Community College, Owens Community College, Sinclair Community College, Bay College, Delta College and Macomb Community College.
Membership with MCISSE is open to academics, industry and governmental agencies that foster Cyber Security development, based on national and international standards: CNSS, ISO, NIST, CSEC 2017, NSA's KSA's and the NIST NICE Workforce Framework.
In March of 2014 ICSEC became the first CISSE Chapter and changed its name to Midwest CISSE Chapter and is incorporated in the State of Michigan. While, our membership is not hinged on CAE status, we all work towards excellence. MCISSE members work together sharing curriculum, course ware, tools and experiences. We welcome, academic and industry partnerships contact: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and the time and location of our next meeting!
