PRESCOTT, Arizona -- The shield for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's
(ERAU) new College of Security and Intelligence (CSI) depicts a metallic
torch, a metal key, and a bald eagle atop a split field of blue and gold -
the colors of the university.
While the bald eagle represents the ERAU mascot, Associate Professor of
Cyber Intelligence and Security Jon Haass said both the key and torch
"Whether it's a locked key for cyber or the key that talks about
information. It represents locking and unlocking information. The torch is
to illuminate the intelligence that's available, and to make it available
for people to understand," Haass said.
On Jan. 29, ERAU officials in Prescott inducted the fledgling college, the
first of its kind in the nation, with speeches and an Air Force and Army
ROTC presentation of colors.
CSI courses include computer and forensic sciences, as well as cyber
security classes that focus on offensive and defensive operations and
analysis, foreign policy and international law, counterterrorism, and
more. The new college also houses ERAU's global security and intelligence
degree program, as well as the current cyber intelligence and security
degree program. Two new degree programs are expected to be unveiled in the
fall of this year - a bachelor's in forensic biology and a master's in
security and intelligence studies.
