Cybersecurity

Online systems are now involved in almost every facet of our lives, from personal finance and healthcare to power grids and other critical national infrastructure.

Keeping cyberspace secure and resilient is more important than ever, so at NYU Tandon, we’re developing ways to make software more resistant to hacking, keep banking PINs reliably private, ensure that computer chips are impervious to piracy and safeguard computer hardware.


Cybersecurity


The home of the largest student-run cybersecurity competition in the world, we’re dedicated to educating the next generation of cyber professionals the world needs, with the multidisciplinary expertise to defend against a new generation of vulnerabilities and threats.
