Cybersecurity

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.
