About Us

Chesapeake Cyber Security (CCS), LLC was founded in January 2021 with the intention of increasing the number well trained cyber security professionals. The realization that this need was apparent came after Dr. Richard Dean's belief that by targeting the core courses of a master's degree program, it is possible to train better equipped cyber professionals within a shorter period of time to fill the huge cyber security professionals' gap. 

We are a team of professionals with many years of experience both in the industry and academia as researchers and educators. We all have designed and taught those cyber security courses at a university. That's the experience we are bringing to this institute.

 

In addition, CCS can help design cyber security solutions and provide consulting services from small to big businesses. CCS will help walk you through the possible risks to your cyber environment and assist with developing plans and training to ensure that your company is able to recover quickly and efficiently.
