New York University Tandon School of Engineering Scholarship Program

Your organization’s information technology staff are your first line of defense against cyber attacks. To keep your organization – and your sensitive information – safe and secure, it is crucial that your information security employees regularly receive the most up-to-date training on innovations in cybersecurity, as well as effective methods to combat cyber-criminals and their ever-evolving tactics.

To address this need, CIS has partnered with New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering, one of the nation’s top engineering schools, to offer your employees generous scholarships to help cover the costs of any and all successfully completed online courses.

Gomory Award for Quality Online Education by the Online Learning Consortium.
