There are seven units and 12 labs across Georgia Tech and the Georgia Tech Reasearch Institute (GTRI) that are engaged in cybersecurity. They include Public Policy and International Affairs, Computing, Business, Professional Education, Engineering, and Protecing Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech’s unique combination of resources and skills is allowing it to create the next wave of cybersecurity solutions and put grey matter to work in solving today’s most vexing challenges.

The article from the Georgia Tech News Center takes an in-depth look at how these units are working to defend against growing cyber threats to our national defense, economic prosperity, and individual freedoms. “Tech’s grey hat hackers study how malicious black hats operate and adapt in order to help the white hats prepare for the next attacks.”
