About the Center

TEEX Cyber Readiness Center logo

The Cyber Readiness Center is part of the Knowledge Engineering Division within the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service. Headquartered in College Station, TX, the Center services the world through technical assistance and training.

Using the Cyber Readiness Cycle of assess, plan, train, and exercise as a model, the center strives to improve the cybersecurity programs of private and public entities. By helping businesses, critical infrastructure, and jurisdictions be better prepared to respond to and recover from a cyber attack or unintentional cyber incident, the overall resiliency of the community is improved.

The Center’s roots began with the cybersecurity courses developed and delivered as part of the DHS/FEMA funded National Emergency Response and Rescue Training Center. In response to the private enterprise needing more customized technical assistance, the Knowledge Engineering Center, began offering vulnerability assessments as a service. As demand grew for additional services, the Cyber Readiness Center was formed.

Employing a number of in-house experts with years of cybersecurity, networking, data management, and programming experience, the Center also has a large number of adjuncts that can be utilized for more capacity or unique skillsets. The Cyber Readiness Center is here to assist your organization, no matter the industry, to get ready for the cyber future.
