Global Security Initiative

The Global Security Initiative is a university-wide interdisciplinary hub for global security research directed by Nadya Bliss, in the School of Computing, Informatics and Decision Systems Engineering

The initiative's 150 faculty affiliates primarily focus on studies of climate impact, cybersecurity, robotics and autonomous systems. They draw from engineering and computer sciences, as well as moral philosophy, political science, psychology, law, history, math and anthroplogy, to fuel research studies.

The Center for Cybersecurity and Digital Forensics offers expertise in identity management, privacy, malware, predictive analytics and cyberthreat intellegence, including the dark web. 

The institute also serves as ASU’s primary interface to the Department of Defense, the Intelligence Community and ASURE (ASU Research Enterprise), an off-campus research facility.
