CEHC Expands Expertise in Cybersecurity, Homeland Security, and State and Local Government

With the recent approval of the major, The College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity seems to be expanding! 312 students are enrolled in the minor, 64 in the major, 3 faculty members have been hired and now the College is welcoming their 4th faculty addition.

Brian Nussbaum, originally from Rockefeller College, has just transferred into the College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity (CEHC) due to his background, professional experience, and areas of research. Nussbaum has expertise in cybersecurity and cyber threats, terrorism, homeland security, risk and intelligence analysis, state and local homeland security efforts, and critical infrastructure protection; CEHC was the perfect transition for him.

Nussbaum currently teaches CEHC 101 Introduction to Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity. Through the use of lectures, leading discussions and bringing guest speakers from the field into the classroom, students have been exposed to various ways to think about, measure, assess and compare risks, as well as how to mitigate them and respond to incidents that do occur. The three disciplines are explored through crosscutting themes, including preparedness, incident management and response, crisis communication, recovery and resiliency.

CEHC is glad to have Brian Nussbaum on board and as part of a team that will continue to grow.
