University of Texas at San Antonio has several nationally ranked cybersecurity programs including, the Institute for Cyber Security, UTSA Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security, and UTSA Center for Education and Research in Information and Infrastructure Assurance and Security.

(Tribune News Service) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio is one of six universities in the nation tapped by the U.S. Army Reserve to become a founding member of a program that will train soldiers in cybersecurity through classroom instruction and field work.

UTSA is joining the Army Reserve Cyber Private Public Partnership Program, or Cyber P3 initiative, which also includes the University of Washington, Norwich University, George Mason University, Drexel University, and University of Colorado.

“Each of these schools have been chosen for their excellence in cyber security research, teaching and their experience in helping the public and private sectors address cyber security issues,” Lt. Gen. Jeffery Talley, Chief of U.S. Army Reserve, said in its press statement.

UTSA has several nationally ranked cybersecurity programs including the Institute for Cyber Security, UTSA Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security, and UTSA Center for Education and Research in Information and Infrastructure Assurance and Security. Last year, a national survey of information technology professionals by the Ponemon Institute for Hewlett-Packard ranked its cybersecurity program No. 1 in the nation.

“This initiative is a great example of how universities can work with the military and corporate partners to respond to the nation’s need for a highly skilled workforce,” John H. Frederick, UTSA provost and vice president for academic affairs, said in its press statement.

The FBI and corporate partners such as Rackspace U.S. Inc., Verizon Communications Inc., Microsoft Corp., Professional Project Services Inc. (Pro2Serve), Chevron Corp. and CALIBRE Systems are also helping with the project.
