CSO – The cybersecurity-focused SANS Technology Institute has received accreditation that will make it much easier for many students to receive tuition reimbursement from employers.
The institute announced Tuesday that it has been accredited by The Middle States Commission of Higher Education, which is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. The commission approves the academic standards of about 530 colleges and universities, mostly in the mid-Atlantic region.
The SANS Institute, a cooperative research and education organization for security professionals, established the SANS Technology Institute in 2005 to offer a Master of Science degree in information security engineering and information security management. The institute is an independent subsidiary of SANS.
