As a result, it has become a leading concern for policy and law makers. Researchers at Georgia Tech work to further develop protection methods for every area– including, personal freedom and autonomy, public safety, corporate behavior and profitability and international relations.
Georgia Tech researchers, faculty and alumni frequently hold appointments as cybersecurity advisors to assist top federal officials, the White House, Congress, the National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and major corporations. They lead precisely at the intersection of technology capability, use and policy, where many of the most pressing issues lie.
