At this blissful moment, we would like to inform that the Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security and Digital Forensics Program was the first in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to submit the application for Program Evaluation.  In November 2019, the program was evaluated under the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) Program Criteria for Cybersecurity and Similarly Named Computing Programs.
