One of CCSET's guiding standards is to empower students by developing and coordinating world-class programs, engaging curriculum and hands-on experiences so they understand the risks to information systems, mitigation strategies, and how to participate in and lead effective cyber security teams. Students will gain knowledge and skill in security engineering, policy formation, network security, forensics, risk management, cyber intelligence, cyber operations and leadership.

Programs currently developed and supported through CCSET include:

Other areas of development include cyber security law and policy; cyber security in the health domain; cyber security to support law enforcement's efforts to better serve the public.
