Cyber SMART is the new multi-discipline collaborative Industry/University cyber research center at Georgetown University. Established in 2019, this new center is revolutionizing cyber research and expanding understanding of all aspects of cyber in the U.S. and internationally through industry/university multi-disciplinary collaboration. The name of the new center reflects this philosophy. SMART stands for Security, Management, Applications, Regulation, and Training – the essential elements needed to address this new era of cyber and to develop the new cyber workforce.
Specifically, the center aims to make public and private sector organizations, educators, students and policy makers smarter about all aspects of cyber. Cyber SMART engages faculty and students from all relevant disciplines from across the institutions in the Cyber SMART network to work with affiliates from public and private sector organizations to produce collaborative cross-discipline cyber research, training and education.
