The NSA/CSS program to identify National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2019. The success of this program in certifying over 270 programs has greatly influenced how many institutions are developing and evolving their Cybersecurity curriculums. On November 30, 2018 ABET announced their accreditation criteria for Undergraduate Cybersecurity Programs. This effort by one of the primary accrediting agencies in higher education will be sure to also exert great influence over the future direction of Cybersecurity programs.

This panel consists of four members. Each have leadership roles in developing Cybersecurity curriculums and programs at their institutions. Two have achieved CAE designations, one is in the application process, and one has remained independent. This panel will discuss the current state of their programs, an evolving model curriculum, and the influence of a changing certifying/accrediting landscape.
