MC: A Center of Academic Excellence in Computer Defense (CAE-CD)

On January 31, 2022 the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) designated Montgomery College a "Center of Academic Excellence in Computer Defense (CAE-CD)". The award recognizes Montgomery College as superior in the creation of highly skilled cybersecurity professionals who can help strengthen the vulnerabilities in our national infrastructure. As cyberattacks increase in both quantity and lethality, and target individuals as well as entire organizations, the demand for well prepared cybersecurity professionals has never been so great.

The Montgomery College Cybersecurity Program went through an intensive assessment and it was determined that students receive high quality technical training that will help them become leaders in a variety of cybersecurity disciplines. It was acknowledged that program graduates obtain extensive knowledge on how to address the varied cybersecurity threats that our nation currently faces.

The CAE-CD designation is an important achievement for Montgomery College. It recognizes that students are being educated in a manner that is endorsed by two of the most prominent cybersecurity employers in the nation: NSA and DHS.

As a result of this designation, students will be able to enrich their cybersecurity degree program by participating in studies and academic collaborations with government entities as part of their school’s CAE-CD designation.
