FSU is the only university in Florida with both designations -

* Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE/IAE)

* Center of Academic Excellence in Research (CAE-R)


The Center for Security and Assurance in Information Technology (C-SAIT) was established in 2000. Its mission is to serve as a focal point for members of different academic disciplines, government, and industry, to carry out world-class research and to advance the practice and public awareness of information technology security and assurance through education and public service. C-SAIT is dedicated to the synthesis of education and research through combined focus on the theory and applications of Information Security. The primary research function of the Center is to provide an environment that fosters world-class, applied research in information security technology, with a focus on innovation and learning.

In December 2008, due to the initiative of C-SAIT, Florida State University was re-designated by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE/IAE) for the period 2009-2014. In April 2009, FSU was designated by the NSA and DHS an Information Assurance Center of Academic Excellence in Research (CAE-R). There are only thirty-six US institutions with both designations and FSU is the only one in Florida.
