Our Vision

To establish a world class cyber security center by partnering with key local universities, industry, and government agencies in order to facilitate cyber security research, education, and practice in the UAE and more generally in the GCC region. The center will act as a catalyst to improve cyber security in the UAE and enhance its regional and global competitiveness in this field.



CCS-AD will build the capacity needed for high impact research programs in cyber security and execute multidisciplinary research in security and privacy that has both scholarly merit, and practical applications that will be commercialized. Collaborative research will be conducted by NYU and partner university faculty, and a core group of on-site researchers in Abu Dhabi, including research professors, postdocs, and graduate students, in partnership with industry and government agencies.
