Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity

The Center for Cybersecurity is dedicated to developing the capacity for keeping data secure and private throughout its lifetime, a core focus of Columbia University's Data Science Institute. The Center will bring together and build upon the research of the departments of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, and the work of the Columbia Business School, among others. By way of example, in the past year, Columbia start-ups such as CellRox have been launched based on technology related to digital security. The Center will be housed on the Morningside Campus.

CURRENT AND PREVIOUS PROJECTS

      1. CleanOS is a new mobile operating system designed to manage sensitive data rigorously and maintain a clean environment at any point in time.

      1. This project will provide energy-efficient primitives that will make security cheap and effective on a wide variety of computing platforms, such as ubiquitous mobile phones or high-value installations in military and financial sectors

      1. Discovering patterns in audit logs that capture user access to sensitive data which help identify whether specific access are anomalous, and hence subject to further audit, or not.
