Conversations at the Forefront of Cyber security with NYU CCS

Thought Leaders


Join us for a series of thought leadership sessions with the faculty of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering Center for Cybersecurity (CCS). You will gain deep insights into current and future technology and policy-oriented topics related to cybersecurity and privacy.

Moderated by Dr. Edward G. Amoroso, Distinguished Research Professor at CCS, each of the thirty-minute discussion sessions will delve deeply into an important and relevant aspect of the research and innovation projects currently being investigated at NYU.

Designed for practitioners, but likely of interest to developers, managers, researchers, and academics, the live, on-line discussions will start on June 4th, and will run weekly for eight consecutive weeks.
