UB has received a $1.6 million federal grant to teach students how to protect the United States from cyberattacks.
The grant, awarded by the National Science Foundation, will be used to bring up to 16 students into the university’s Center of Excellence in Information Systems, Assurance, Research and Education (CEISARE). CEISARE is one of approximately 50 federally designated centers that supply the United States with graduates trained to protect the nation from computer-based attacks.
An interdisciplinary program, CEISARE includes a varied group of UB faculty, and H. Raghav Rao, SUNY Distinguished Service Professor in the School of Management’s Department of Management Science and Systems, is one of the grant’s co-investigators.
