In line with the Center for Academic Excellence goals and to promote cyber defense skills and awareness,
Riverside City College, with support from the Riverside Community College District, has established a
Cyber Security Center and an Information Security and Cyber Defense educational pathway for students
interested in pursuing a career in cyber defense. The mission of the center is to provide access to
technology and resources to assist our students in pursuit of a career in cyber defense as well as to
provide for staff, faculty and the community at large, resources on information security awareness and
online safety for both adults and children.
Take courses that align with Cisco, CompTIA, ISC2, LPIC Certifications and more. RCC has an
outstanding Information Security and Cyber Defense Program. You can earn a certificate in as little as
2 semesters. Get more information on classes here: RCC Cyber Security Pathway. A high tech online
virtual environment is made available to students pursuing our “Information Security and Cyber Defense”
pathway and certificate. An Associate degree is forthcoming in the same.
The Cyber Security Center is also used by our Cyber Security Club for meetings, discussions and various
cyber defense projects as well as practice space for competitions such as NCL and WRCCDC. The center
is shared by our ACM club and program for coding practice and projects. RCC also hosts CyberPatriot
summer camps for high school students to foster interest and learning in cyber defense.
Our center is located in the Martin Luther King Building, room 205 and is equipped with 27 workstations
with Internet access that is isolated from the production network and a variety of security tools including
virtual machines where various operating systems can be loaded and studied from a CD perspective in a
safe manner. A library of computing and security books are available for use on location.
Many organizations offer cyber security scholarships to students pursuing a career in this important
and in-demand field, so if you are looking to land additional funding for college, be sure to check out these
