About the Center

ECS Center for Cybersecurity focuses on education, research, and community outreach in the area of cybersecurity. It was created in response to the increasing number and sophistication of cyberattacks affecting millions of individuals, organizations, and government institutions every year.

Why the center is needed


In the recent decade, the cyberthreat landscape has evolved from hacker enthusiasts breaching systems for enjoyment to highly organized networks distributing malicious software for profit, to large hacktivist groups working to undermine everyday operations of organizations, and to government-funded efforts to wage cyberattacks of remarkable levels of sophistication and destructive power.

Our Goal


Our goal is to challenge the cyberattackers by training the next generation of top-notch cybersecurity practitioners, researching techniques and methodologies for countering the state-of-the-art cyberthreats, organizations, and volunteering our services to help individuals and businesses in our community to stay secure.
