Applied Research Programs

The GW Cyber Academy conducts applied research in the fields of critical infrastructure protection and cyber operations. During the first five years of the Academy, the research agenda will be set around topics including, but not limited to:

  • Cyber Defense and Data Exchange
  • Security of Big Data
  • Protection and Breach Detection Technology for Critical Infrastructures

These areas have been identified based on current trends in these fields and the need to develop products that can be commercialized and that can benefit to both the private industries and the university. The objective is to create an incubator of innovative solutions to cybersecurity problems.
