The Cyber-Security Community connects UTEP faculty and professional staff who have expertise and knowledge in cyber-security or in adjacent competencies. It enables faculty, staff and students to explore new ideas, solve challenging problems, identify new opportunities, and disseminate shared knowledge and resources. In addition, the community allows its members to exchange information by providing access to news, events, publications, and efforts in the area of cyber-security.


The Cyber-Security Community aspires to build the assets and capabilities in cybersecurity at UTEP that can lead to significant Texas-based educational and research initiatives. In addition to pursuing interdisciplinary and collaborative funding opportunities that align with local, state and national needs, the community will contribute to the University of Texas System Cyber-Security initiatives. The Community will also seek to raise awareness about cyber-security and inspire students to engage with key questions in the field.
