Center for the Science & Engineering of Cyber Security (CSECS)

Overview

CSECS

The objective of the center is to study principles of Cyber Security, how to measure, assess, and enforce security in legacy systems, and how to build new systems that are secured. The science of Cyber Security is addressed by exploiting formal techniques that are theoretically grounded to express, model, and reason about security accurately. The engineering of cyber security utilizes empirical techniques that aim to create holistic and systematic approaches to development of automated tools for cyber security system analysis. The center also examines cyber security issues facing the general public, such as security in business enterprises, health care, and national infrastructures.

Summer Workshop on Cyber Security

The Center for the Science and Engineering of Cyber Security in the Department of Computer Science at Texas Tech University and the Center for Security Studies at Angelo State University have been awarded a two−year grant from the National Science Foundation ( Award #1241756) to offer summer workshop in the area of cyber security to faculty, instructors, and teachers from community colleges in Texas. The project accepts applications for a week−long workshop to be held in the Department of Computer Science at Texas Tech University during Summer 2013.
