Cybersecurity

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

With every aspect of our lives now affected by online systems, NYU Tandon cybersecurity experts are finding the keys to keeping personal data private, power grids impregnable, national defense infrastructure safe from malefactors, and much more.

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.

Undergraduate and graduate students associated with the OSIRIS Lab and the Center for Cyber Security organize CSAW, the most comprehensive student-run cybersecurity event in the world, featuring international competitions, workshops, and industry events.

Academic Programs

Computer science focuses on designing, building, and using the computers and systems that we interact with every day — from iPhones to the complex databases in banks and hospitals.

Secure Systems Lab

The Secure Systems Laboratory (SSL), under the direction of Professor Justin Cappos, works to find practical and deployable solutions to real-world security threats. Over the past few years, the lab has developed products and improved on existing system designs that detect and isolate security faults, secure private data, provide a secure mechanism for fixing software flaws in different contexts, and even foster a deeper understanding about how to help programmers avoid security flaws in the first place.
