CIS: Programming. Web Programming. Cyber Security

In the February 2013 speech by President Obama on improving critical infrastructure in our technology, he said:

“Repeated cyber intrusions into critical infrastructure demonstrate the need for improved cybersecurity.  The cyber threat to critical infrastructure continues to grow and represents one of the most serious national security challenges we must confront.  The national and economic security of the United States depends on the reliable functioning of the Nation’s critical infrastructure in the face of such threats.”

CIS Overview

This technological infrastructure depends on well-trained professionals to support the systems and networks necessary for essential computer operations.  At CAL, students learn programming, networking, and are exposed to multiple cybersecurity technologies, processes, and procedures.  Our students learn how to analyze cybersecurity threats, vulnerabilities and risks and develop appropriate strategies to mitigate potential cybersecurity problems.
