The Harris Institute for Information Assurance has been designated a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Research for academic years 2011–2016 by the National Security Agency’s (NSA) Central Security Service. Harris Institute Director Richard Ford and Harris Corporation Senior Secure Systems Engineer Ronda Henning ’90 M.B.A. were recognized in a ceremony at the 15th Annual Conference of the Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education on June 13–15 in Fairborn, Ohio.
“Although our Harris Institute is relatively new, I am not surprised, and am, indeed, very pleased that it should receive such prestigious recognition,” said President Anthony J. Catanese. “I am proud that the center plays such an important role in vital information assurance solutions and that our students can benefit from its world-class resources and faculty.”
The Florida Tech institute is one of just two in Florida designated a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Research.
