Cyber Defense

San Antonio is a Leading Center for Cybersecurity in the USA. San Antonio is recognized by the National Security Agency NSA) as one of the nation's leading cities for cybersecurity activity. With its significant military presence, continually thriving private cybersecurity enterprises, and nationally recognized technology and research institutions, San Antonio is increasingly becoming known as "Cyber City, USA."

San Antonio's history as a leader in cybersecurity dates back to the early 1980s when computer networks were just starting to develop. Military personnel based on the Air Force's "Security Hill" in San Antonio were tasked with developing security for systems and nascent computer networks that later evolved into the Internet.

NLC's Cyber Defense program equips students with industry-relevant Cyber Security Training in Cisco, Windows, and Linux inside of a dedicated network environment. Our teaching methodology balances traditional classroom education with hands-on projects where students use "real world" tools to solve "real world" Cyber Security challenges.
