Welcome to the
Cybersecurity Innovation & Research Center
The Cybersecurity Innovation and Research Center is an interdisciplinary, state-of-the-art Center that trains students to detect and defend against cybercrime and create partnerships between industry, government, and education to analyze threats, strengthen network security, and mitigate the economic impact of cybercrime.
• Provides innovative, hands-on educational opportunities using sophisticated technology and
simulation software to create hyper-realistic cyberattack scenarios.
• Collaborates with industry, government, and other academic institutions to promote cybersecurity
research projects with multiple applications.
• Is a training and educational resource for the New York metropolitan region by providing workshops
for K-12 students through working professionals which create a pipeline to fill the growing demand for a well-educated cybersecurity workforce across all industries.
The Center is a joint project of the Fred DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Frank G. Zarb School of Business.
The Center is equipped with cutting-edge technology and simulation software to create hyper-realistic cyberattack scenarios. It features 36 computers, a separate server room, and status boards on the walls that students use to manage the operations of a cybersecurity exhibition or share ideas and information.
It is one of the only academic ‘war room’ facilities in the New York metropolitan area with a cyber range, an immersive, virtual experience that replicates the high-pressure environment of an attack and allows students to work through it in real time, from detection and response to repair and recovery.
