We are VERY proud, and very excited, to announce that Champlain College has been named a 2013 SC Awards finalist in SC Magazine's Best Cyber Security Higher Education Program category. The winner will be announced on February 26; it is going to be a long 2 1/2 months!
What is this award?
This national award is given to "The best cyber security undergraduate or higher education program which currently has a cyber security degree program. These are for schools throughout the United States and qualification is based on the quality of instruction, programs and how well these prepare students for the marketplace."
Champlain College has been educating digital forensics and information security students since 2002. The college was one of the first colleges in the country to offer a bachelor’s degree in digital forensics and information security, it was also one of the first (if not the very first) to offer that degree 100% online. Since that time we have expanded our portfolio to include two Master’s degree programs in Digital Forensics, also available 100% online. Champlain also has a partnership with ISFCE which allows us to offer a CCE Bootcamp to our students, online or on our campus, prepping them to sit for the CCE exam upon completion.
Champlain College is recognized by the National Institute of Justice, which identified our digital forensics degrees as Model Electronic Crime and Digital Investigation Programs, and the National Security Agency (NSA) and Department of Homeland Security which designated Champlain as a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education. Champlain has proudly held those honors since 2004 and 2007 respectively.
