Johns Hopkins University Information Security Institute
The Johns Hopkins University Information Security Institute (JHUISI) is the University’s focal point for research and education in information security, assurance and privacy. Securing cyberspace and our national information infrastructure is more critical now than ever before, and it can be achieved only when the core technology, legal and policy issues are adequately addressed.
JHUISI is committed to a comprehensive approach that includes input from academia, industry and government. The University, through JHUISI‘s leadership, has thus been designated as a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance by the National Security Agency and leading experts in the field.
