Center for Cyber Security

Cyber Security

A National Center for Digital Forensics Academic Excellence

It has been said that the third world war will be fought in Cyberspace. That war is not "going" to be fought; it is being fought, and at Longwood, we believe in preparing students with cutting-edge classes and hands-on experience to help fill the growing need for educated professionals.

Through the Longwood Center for Cyber Security, students:

  • Have access to internships and jobs in the rapidly growing fields of Cyber Security and Cyber Forensics.
  • Obtain a Department of Defense-recognized skill set and awareness of current issues facing digital forensics investigators and examiners.
  • Receive practical, hands-on experience through the Center’s state-of-the-art lab.
  • Learn from and conduct research with internationally known Cyber Security and Cyber Forensics experts.
