LEADING-EDGE CYBERSECURITY RESEARCH
Work at the Center for Assurance Research & Engineering (CARE) extends beyond research--our mission is to provide innovative cybersecurity solutions that result in meaningful products and policies, which have positive impact on society and the world.
Here's a six-point summary of who we are and how we engage with organizations:
Breakthrough Cybersecurity Research
CARE conducts vital research on the most critical cybersecurity issues in our world today.
Research to Practice Orientation
We transform our research into innovative solutions to increase security in real-world settings.
Cybersecurity is more than pure technology; our research also encompasses the fields of policy, business and leadership.
Broad Areas of Expertise
CARE offers a full breadth of cybersecurity research and expertise, including:
• Securing mobile devices and mobile apps,
