Established in 2013, the Drexel University Cybersecurity Institute educates the next cyber intelligent cadre that our city, region and nation requires to counter emerging threats and risks, while advancing professional cyber risk management in law and policy, privacy and enforcement in order to counter both criminal and advanced persistent threats associated with cyberattacks. The Institute is home to the Auerbach and Berger Families Cybersecurity Laboratory, which serves as the University’s first training facility dedicated to identifying challenges and discovering solutions in the areas of cyber infrastructure protection and incident response. The lab allows researchers, cybersecurity professionals and students to gain hands-on experience in protection, defense and attack operations without disturbing real-world networks.
