Today, our computer systems, services, and devices are more important than ever, and so is keeping them safe.

Major tech companies, government agencies, and non-profits make practical use of technology created right here. Whether its application security, digital forensics, cyber-crime mitigation, social engineering, biometrics, or adversarial machine learning, Tandon researchers are working on it.


From improving the transparency of online political advertising and combating the sale of counterfeit goods on the Internet to making sure that the software used in automobiles is impervious to hacking and that the computer-chip supply chain is free of piracy, NYU Tandon cybersecurity experts are at the forefront of a burgeoning field.
