Cybersecurity Innovation and Research Center

Hofstra University’s interdisciplinary, state-of-the-art Cybersecurity Innovation and Research Center will train 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.

The Center will:
  • provide innovative, hands-on educational opportunities using sophisticated technology and simulation software to create hyper-realistic cyberattack scenarios.
  • Collaborate with industry, government and other academic institutions to promote cybersecurity research projects with multiple applications.
  • Be a training and educational resource for the New York metropolitan region, providing a range of workshops for K-12 through professional training to create a pipeline to fill the growing demand for a well-educated cybersecurity workforce across all industries.
