The UA-ARC is affiliated with the University of Arizona in providing the gateway to the University’s resource enterprise in the area of cyber. Cyber security touches all areas of research within the University. The UArizona conducts basic and applied research from design development and prototyping in cyber security to securing databases, networks, telecommunications, mobile telecom and information infrastructure.
Our Cyber Competencies
Big Data and data analytics
Aligning institutional expertise and computational resources to solve cutting edge data-driven research endeavors for our DoD and Industry partners.
The UArizona Cloud and Autonomic Computing Center concentrates on research in advanced distributed computing as part of the National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers program.
Virtual Learning Environment
Leveraging the use of a cloud based learning environment, the UArizona provides world-class cybersecurity training to students all over the world.
Don’t get hooked! Research is conducted on the human element of security. Malicious attackers exploit the vulnerabilities in human behavior to gain access or retrieve information.
Cyber Security Facts
The cyber security research being conducted will help organizations like the Department of Defense create stronger, more reliable programs to combat cyber criminals. Cyber attacks can occur in the medical industry, agriculture, military, and more. During the next five years, cybercrime might become the greatest threat to every person, place and thing in the world. With evolving technology comes evolving hackers, and we are behind in security.
Most companies take nearly 6 months to detect a data breach
Unfilled cyber security jobs worldwide will reach 3.5 million by 2021
By 2020 there will be roughly 200 billion connected devices
Cybercrime damages will reach $5.9 trillion annually by 2021
Cyber Security Laboratories and Research Centers
UA-ARC has access to dozens of laboratories and facilities in the realm of cyber security. The facilities focus on a range of cyber-related research topics such as bioimaging, cloud services, GIS mapping, and national security.

Cyber Security News
We do not always realize how much cyber security and cyber intelligence affect our daily lives, but Jason Denno’s students do, and they are ready to be world leaders upon graduation.

The University of Arizona’s CyberApolis platform, designed by the College of Applied Science and Technology, is a virtual learning environment home to over 15,000 virtual personas operated by sophisticated artificial intelligence. The virtual learning environment is central to the College of Applied Science and Technology’s cyber operations curriculum, and will be showcased at a booth during the National TechNet Augusta conference in Georgia this week.
A program at the University of Arizona that began only 18 months ago has been recognized as one of the best in the country for 2018-2019.
The UA’s program in cyber operations, based at its Sierra Vista campus and taught both traditionally and online, has received official designation as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations, or CAE-CO, by the National Security Agency, an arm of the U.S. Department of Defense. After an extensive application process, the NSA made a site visit in April. It will make a formal announcement of the UA’s designation on June 6.
