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.

cloud computing

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.

Social engineering

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.

UArizona President Dr. Robbins Discusses Cyber Program with Jason Denno

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. 

Nearly $6M will help UArizona grow national cybersecurity workforce

Daily life is happening increasingly online, and there aren’t enough cybersecurity professionals in the U.S. to keep everyone safe online.

That’s the basic problem that nearly $6 million in new funding will help the University of Arizona’s nationally renowned cyber operations program to address in the coming years.

The UArizona College of Applied Science and Technology, where the program is based, received the funding in the fall from Arizona’s Technology and Research Initiative Fund. The voter-supported fund helps the state’s three public universities address issues critical to the state or larger society, including workforce development.
