NYU’s Center for Global Affairs (CGA) is hosting New York City Cyber Command (NYC3) and partner organizations for an open house on October 1, 2019, from 4pm to 6:30pm at 15 Barclay St. in downtown New York City. The event will gather the diverse cyber and information security community of New York to explore the critical mission of NYC3 and its partner organizations and showcase CGA’s new degree program on transnational cyber issues.
Attending organizations include:
- Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS)
- International Consortium of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals (ICMCP)
- Executive Women’s Forum (EWF)
- Empire Hacking
NYC3 is committed to protecting City systems that will provide vital services to New Yorkers from cyber threats, and helping residents become safer in their digital lives. As the organization defending the biggest municipality in the country, NYC3 is charged with directing citywide incident response, setting citywide cybersecurity policies and standards and working with city agencies to strengthen their cyber defenses.
The new MS in Global Security, Conflict, and Cybercrime, offered by CGA, prepares a global student body to provide leadership, management, direction, advocacy and analysis in support of strengthening the cyber posture of an organization to assure its mission in a contested operational environment. The curriculum offers an opportunity for students to gain an understanding of the STEM fundamentals of cyberspace in order to inform their study of the social scientific dimensions of cyber espionage, crime, and warfare.
New York is home to chapters of several diverse and distinct organizations in cybersecurity, focusing on the representation of minoritized groups, such as WiCyS, ICMCP, and EWF. Additionally, active local meetups will be present, particularly Empire Hacking, which cultivates a community of pragmatic security researchers.
