As we become more reliant on digital technologies, protecting online information and data is of critical importance. To address this need, our department has developed a large research portfolio related to computer security, privacy, and assurance.
Housed within the Department of Computer Science is the Johns Hopkins Institute for Information Security, a leading hub for research and education in cryptography, privacy, medical information security, and software and system security. Through ISI’s leadership, the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security have designated Johns Hopkins University as a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance in Research and Education.
