PHOENIX — Leaders at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Ariz. are offering the nation’s first College of Security and Intelligence.
The new college is designed to meet the growing demand for cybersecurity, global security and intelligence experts. Former CIA Intelligence Analyst Dr. Phillip Jones will be installed as Dean of the College of Security and Intelligence on Wednesday.
“Our students need to be interested in foreign cultures,” he said. “You can’t really understand the world if you come at it from our own American perspectives. It requires professionals who have very high standards, ethics and skills because, in the end, intelligence work reaches the desk of the president.”
Jones said students will get hands-on training in the computer security and forensic lab, also known as the Hacker’s Lab.
“We have students playing both sides of an issue. In other words, one bank of computers is trying to penetrate another bank of computers and the other bank of computers is trying to defend.”
The College of Security and Intelligence will also house the cyber intelligence and security degree program that Embry-Riddle created last year.
A master’s program will be offered this fall.
