Cyber & National Security

Protecting cyber and national security

Cyberattacks, including ransomware, are increasing in number and sophistication, placing the need to continually advance efforts to protect our nation and its citizens at the forefront. IU is helping state and local government agencies, not-for-profit organizations and small businesses better manage cyberattacks, protect intellectual property, improve privacy and prepare future cybersecurity experts.

In today’s complex world, research partnerships are crucial to protecting America, both its many citizens and the nation itself. IU continues to build these partnerships with various divisions of the U.S. Department of Defense, such as Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, located in Southern Indiana.
