Cyber Center


The Johnson County Community College Information Technology-Networking program aims to be a local and national leader in cyber defense education. The curriculum is mapped to the National Security Agency/Department of Homeland Security (NSA/DHS) Center of Academic Excellence (CAE) knowledge units in cyber defense. This validates the program's rigor and viability.

To further support cyber defense in education, the Information Technology-Networking program created the Cyber Center. The mission of the center is to provide:

  • Program guidance and oversight — It’s critical that our program continues to meet the highest national academic standards to prepare graduates for the local cybersecurity workforce. We also assist other institutions in developing their programs.
  • General cyber defense information — We provide resources so people can understand what attacks are happening and what they can do to protect themselves.
  • Collaboration and outreach opportunities among students, faculty and other institutions — We have a club, cyber competitions, guest lecturers and community events.
