Cybersecurity has become the top priority for any organizations in protecting their digital assets or online activities. Modern sophisticated adversaries can easily find vulnerabilities and make exploits to launch attacks for financial gains or as a way to achieve specific objectives. With the increased use of the Internet and prevalence of computing systems in critical infrastructure, technology is undoubtedly a vital part of modern daily life. Unfortunately, the increasingly networked nature of the modern world has also enabled the spread of malicious software's, ranging from annoying adware to advanced nation-state sponsored cyber-weaponry. As a result, the ability to detect, analyze, understand, control, and eradicate malicious software and actors is an increasingly important issue of economic and national security. The center for cybersecurity and advanced computing (C2AC) at Slippery Rock University is focused on addressing cybersecurity concerns via collaborative research and interdisciplinary academic efforts spanning diverse concepts related to:

  • network administration
  • cryptography
  • software assurance
  • secure coding
  • security tools
  • security analysis
  • project management
  • incident response
  • scripting
  • post-mortem deep forensics
  • ethical reasoning
  • malware analysis
  • data analytics
  • advanced system architectures
  • parallel and distributed computing
