Center for Cyber Security

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.

In a time of rapidly-changing internet and computer network technology, the value placed on educated professionals in this arena has greatly increased. The mission of the Longwood Center for Cyber Security focuses on cutting edge research into cyber security, forensics and policy.

The Center creates a partnership between Longwood University, the ADFSL (Association for Digital Forensics, Security and Law) and industry, building upon Longwood University’s solid foundations in this increasingly important, global problem domain.
