CS researchers have created and demonstrated a powerful new artificial intelligence-powered style of attack that can crack into private data and learn it remarkably quickly. It appears, so far, to be immune to normal cyberdefenses. And it works by exploiting and compromising methods only recently developed to protect our privacy.
Stevens' computer security, computer vision and programming languages program areas are ranked 25 in the nation by CSRankings.org. CSRankings uses a metrics-based system to rank computer science departments by faculty members' publications at the most prestigious conferences.
CS professor and department chair Giuseppe Ateniese won the 2018 Technical Recognition Award from IEEE Communications and Information Security Technical Committee, one of the most prestigious in his field.
Stevens Trains Next Generation of Cybersecurity Specialists
Major data breaches, hacks and identity thefts have become disturbingly commonplace. As the threat continues to escalate, Stevens is helping lead a global effort to anticipate and defend against the next waves of cybercrime.
The Department of Computer Science is home to several venerable research centers and laboratories with grants from prominent funding agencies such as the National Science Foundation (NSF) and Office of Naval Research (ONR).
The Center for the Advancement of Secure Systems and Information Assurance (CASSIA) performs research in information assurance and cybersecurity.
