Key Faculty

Faculty Research Directors

As we build the new School of Cybersecurity and Privacy, we will draw upon the knowledge of a wide variety of faculty from across the Institute, including three experienced administrators who are also world-class cybersecurity researchers themselves. As they have helped to shape the cybersecurity research centers of the past and present, they have taken the lead in helping to shape the future research vision of the school..
