NYU Prepares To Fight Cybercrime


Where there’s technology, there is trouble, menace, and break-ins. You name it! Our world is at a point where cybercrime and security breaks have become a matter of prime concern for many nations. If technology is your life, it’s a major reason for worry. In simple terms, nothing out on the web is safe.

“We really need more security professionals — the very foundation of our society is being threatened,” says Nasir Memon, a professor at New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering. As expressed in WIRED reports.

Working with the New York City Cyber Command, NYU has successfully been able to help the worlds greatest cities as well as its own home, Manhattan, defend the infrastructure, of its valuable data and information.

“NYC3”, launched by Mayor Bill de Blasio in 2017, works with agencies across New York, with a goal to minimize and eliminate the loss and destruction caused by cybercrime. We might witness thousands of cybersecurity jobs in the coming years.

Understanding the needs of their potential students and cost of education in the field of Cybersecurity, NYU has offered to provide 75% scholarship towards tuition cost for students enrolling in the Cybersecurity Degree Program. This incentive is a part of the NYU’s very own “NY Cyber Fellowship”.

With the growing rate of Cybercrimes and more smart devices, we will always be in need of smart minds to make data and information more secure.
