UCF’s Cyber Security and Privacy Cluster is on the cutting edge of data protection by not only understanding and exploring existing ways to stay secure but also inventing new ones. The cluster also focuses on understanding the social implications new technology and the Internet of Things have on our daily lives.

This research provides the modern world with much needed solutions to both the human and the technological causes of security and privacy problems. This aids people, businesses and the government and enhances faculty expertise for teaching students.

Security and privacy problems can involve human users, physical facilities, hardware, software, communication protocols and potential attackers.

The cluster spans many disciplines – computer science, computer engineering, industrial engineering and management systems, legal studies, mathematics, optics and photonics, philosophy, political science, psychology and statistics – to meet these security and privacy challenges head on.
