About the UT System Cyber and Cloud Security Initiative

The University of Texas System, in support of its member institutions, is pursuing a strategic initiative focusing on the future needs of cybersecurity organizations and workforce. The initiative is a convergence of core competencies and capabilities across the UT System's member institutions to build an ecosystem integrating areas of education and training, industry outreach, research, applied technologies, and academic activities mapped to specific economic and educational needs of Texas (public and private sectors). This initiative will be a sustainable, competitive, and transformative force with national and global impact.


Cyber and Cloud Security at UT Dallas

In 2004, UT Dallas became proactive in cybersecurity education and research by establishing the Cyber Security Research and Education Institute (CSI). Since then, it has grown into one of the leading research organizations in cybersecurity in the world with approximately $26 million in research grants from a variety of federal agencies, as well as about $7 million in grants to create education programs in cybersecurity. Institute members consist of 10 core faculty in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science and affiliated faculty members from the Naveen Jindal School of Management, the School of Economics, Political and Policy Sciences, the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences, and the School of Arts and Humanities.


In addition to research in core areas such as data security and privacy, active malware defense, secure cloud computing and security analytics, research is being conducted in risk-based security, economic aspects of security and cognitive neuroscience aspects of security.
