Center for Cyber Security
Ivy Tech Community College created the Center for Cyber Security to meet the demands for high-quality cyber security education and training. Through our nationally recognized center, Ivy Tech students receive the education and training they need for jobs that secure our community, state and nation’s computers, networks and critical infrastructure.
