Pace University and the Seidenberg School have been committed to cybersecurity education and research for over 10 years. We have established collaborations with faculty at academic institutions locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally, and with professionals in the cybersecurity space in private and public sectors. As we continue to strengthen our cybersecurity programs and prepare to address the needs of our students and the industry in the future, we strive to achieve sustainable and high-impact success. To that end, we established a cybersecurity advisory group of industry leaders and experts to provide programmatic guidance in several areas, including: curriculum, co-curricular activities, research, and outreach. The group meets semi-annually (fall/spring).
