Cyberspace is fundamental to our national prosperity, as it is critical to the economy, government, and day-to-day societal functioning. The Cybersecurity in Application, Research, and Education (CARE) Lab offers a social science approach to cybersecurity and seeks to foster a multidisciplinary dialogue among academia, industry, nonprofits, and government.
This intersectionality enables a creative, unique and holistic means of understanding the phenomena of cyberattacks and cybersecurity.
