WHY THIS MATTERS:
It's all increasing dramatically (and menacingly): phishing emails, fake emails, data breaches, and identity theft. For as many new challenges that pop up, there are new defensive tools and strategies. UConn is investing heavily in cybersecurity with its next-generation $1-million lab. Students will learn real-world skills in this lab while simultaneously helping to address this shape-shifting problem.
