Cyber Security and Policy

Cybersecurity and cybersecurity policy means different things to different disciplines. It can involve the exploration of algorithms and technologies to secure systems, the study of how users interact with computers in order to provide stronger methods of privacy protection, the examination of digital approaches to development, how to control—through laws and technology—the growing surveillance society, analyzing the impact of the “borderless” world of the Internet has on sovereignty, studying how changing communications technologies impact law (and how law impacts changing communications technologies), analyzing the impact of artificial intelligence and machine learning on the economy – and more. Tufts students can:

  • explore algorithms and technologies to secure systems
  • study how users interact with computers in order to provide stronger methods of privacy protection
  • examine digital approaches to development
  • work out how to control—through laws and technology—the growing surveillance society
  • analyze the impact of the “borderless” world of the Internet has on sovereignty
  • study how changing communications technologies impact law (and how law impacts changing communications technologies),
  • analyze the impact of artificial intelligence and machine learning on the economy – and much more.

Tufts Students can also pursue an interdisciplinary M.S. in Cybersecurity and Public Policy.
