In the August 2015 PCAST (President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology) report, the working group and PCAST members chose to examine closely eight specific areas that are critical to the future of Information Technology—cybersecurity being listed first. Part of the Institute of Computing and Cybersystems, the Center for Cybersecurity has two main goals. The first goal is to research in the highly critical areas of information security and biometrics, privacy protection, trusted software engineering, security in mobile computing and wireless communications. The second goal is to advance the practice and public awareness of cybersecurity through various education and outreach activities.
Peruse a selection of publications from the Center for Cybersecurity below. Visit the ICC homepage for more information about the Institute and its Centers.
