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 represent intelligence.

"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.
