St. Cloud State University has been designated a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance/Cybersecurity, 2014-2021, by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The university will be recognized formally in a ceremony in June 2015.

Last year, St. Cloud State was certified by the Committee on National Security Systems and the NSA as offering courseware that meets the national training standards of professionals and risk analysts. The computer security efforts at St. Cloud State are coordinated by the Center for Information Assurance Studies (CIAS), an interdisciplinary effort between the Information Systems Department located in the Herberger Business School and the Computer Networking and Applications Department in the College of Science and Engineering.

Dr. Mark Schmidt, founder and director of CIAS at St. Cloud State, stresses that CIAS provides a supportive learning environment in which students are challenged to develop in-depth knowledge in various domains of information assurance. The mission of CIAS is to facilitate cyber security research, education and practice.

The program aims to reduce vulnerability in the national information infrastructure by promoting higher education and research in information assurance, while increasing the number of experts in the field and contributing to the protection of the National Information Infrastructure.
