The Air Force Association’s CyberPatriot Program Office announced that the Midwest CISSE Chapter (MCISSE) has just been designated as its newest CyberPatriot Center for Excellence. University of Detroit Mercy is the lead institution for the MCISSE coalition.
The Challenge is a unique hands-on experience for high school (16 yrs. and older) and college students – working on real cars with the auto engineers who design these highly embedded systems. It is an immersive week long camp where students learn about vehicle CAN bus architecture, reverse engineering and how to plan and conduct an assessment. It is free to students – all we ask is they arrive in Detroit and we take care of their local transportation, accommodations and meals. We have STEM educators and facilitators engaged on each team to create a productive learning environment. We are looking for highly motivated and curious students and wondering if you would circulate our student recruitment information to your members and communities.
When managing your network, developing an app, or even organizing paper files, sound security is no accident. Companies that consider security from the start assess their options and make reasonable choices based on the nature of their business and the sensitivity of the information involved. Threats to data may transform over time, but the fundamentals of sound security remain constant. As the Federal Trade Commission outlined in Protecting Personal Information: A Guide for Business, you should know what personal information you have in your files and on your computers, and keep only what you need for your business. You should protect the information that you keep, and properly dispose of what you no longer need. And, of course, you should create a plan to respond to security incidents...
The DoD/DHS SSCA Education and Training Committee welcomed members of CISSE to presented our annual conference as a possible distribution channel of course ware and curriculum that has been developed. Planning meeting will follow to allow members of the SSCA group to attend the CISSE 2014 conference in San Deigo, CA and via a web link in McLean, VA.
A partnership with University of Detroit Mercy and UK Knowledge Transfer Network has been arraigned by Dr. Shoemaker. He is also facilitated conversations in the UK between the Ministry of Defense and Department of Trade and Industry and participants from the Software Engineering Institute and the DoD. As a result of those discussions, De Montfort University of Leicester, England wishes to partner with UDM on research dealing with the Cyber Range they developed for their government. Jeff Ingalsbe our new Department Chair will be heading up this new research, for more information please contact him at: email@example.com
UDM was approved by the Department of Justice to develop a training program for cyber-law-enforcement (Cybercops), which will create curricular and courseware recommendations for that emerging area of national need. * because of budget cuts in Congress this project was not funded-back to the drawing board for UDM!

A Beta version of the Software Assurance Curriculum is being tested by our Coalition and many members of the CAE's from NSA. As part of the DoD project UDM is leading SA Curriculum has been loaded onto Ipads and distributed across the country for testing and feedback. Thanks to those of you that have participated in the DoD project. For more information please contact TamaraShoe@att.net
UDM will be rolling out their new joint degree with the Nursing School, Health Informatics, a big cheer for Rita Barrios for all her hard work making this degree happen!
"Making the Business Case For Software Assurance", written for DHS by Nancy Mead of SEI with the help of our own Jeff Inglasbe and Dan Shoemaker.
This year's funding is to develop Course material and tools for incorporating Software Assurance into the current Computer Education. This will be done by mapping the missing elements that make up Software Assurance with the curricular standards found in CC2005, assembled by ACM, IEEE, and AIS. Members of the coalition that would like to work on this years project, please contact TamaraShoe@att.net
University of Detroit Mercy would like to announce their awarded contract with Tacom and Perot Systems for $800,000 to study and develop a repository of Software Assurance Educational literature, tools and technologies, known as the SSARS Repository housed at the University's Information Assurance Labs. Dan Shoemaker and Jeff Inglasbe will be lead on this project, while members of this coalition have been chosen to work on this project from U of T and LCC. Sept. 2008 - Sept. 2009)
Includes: CD-Rom and on-line course, training demonstrations, labs, test prep, study guides and 1 year of educational support. Send an e-mail to register for the class: QuestService@twmi.rr.com. You will receive a pay-pal invoice, that you can simply click on to securely pay for the class.
According to Washtenaw Community College CIS Program Manager Neil Gudsen, the element that sets this competition apart from others was that the competitors had to build a complete defensive strategy rather than just attempt an offensive attack, “It was patterned after an exercise that took place at West Point about three years ago and is the ultimate test of skills in computer security. Teams were required to create a network that simulated an actual business network and then defend it from hackers while responding to constantly changing business scenarios and new challenging attack vectors.”
The first place team trophy went to Baker College of Flint. Second and third place finishers were JacksonCommunity College, and ICSEC member Washtenaw Community College, respectively. Both Baker College and Jackson Community College will advance to the Midwest Regional Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition to be held in Palos Hills, Illinois March 16-18, 2007. Good luck and congratulations to all!
The competition was the collaborative effort of Washtenaw Community College, Eastern MichiganUniversity, ICSEC, and the Center for Systems Security and Information Assurance (CSSIA). Sponsors also included the National Science Foundation (NSF), CISCO Networks, EDS, CDW-G, Verizon Business, Infragard of Michigan, Physiguard, Cyber Defense Education, Compsat Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Access Data Inc.
