Cybersecurity and Information Technology Innovation Lab (CITIL) - Advisory Boards

CITIL’s Advisory Board is comprised of leaders and decision-makers in Information Systems, Computer Science, and Cybersecurity who volunteer their time serving as advisors to faculty, students and staff. They are advocates for the center both attracting and providing resources to CITIL toward the achievement of its vision and goals.
