NYIT Collaborates with U.S. Department of State in State’s Sixth Annual N.Y. Security Conference

New York, N.Y., April 29, 2013 -  Between April 30th and May 4th, the U.S. Department of State will welcome 44 law enforcement and security professionals from 35 countries to participate in its sixth annual New York security conference: “International Crime and Global Cooperation” under the auspices of the State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program. 

The annual conference gives participating government officials, police chiefs, prosecutors, judges, and others from around the world an opportunity to meet their New York counterparts and to discuss the growing importance of information-sharing, cooperation and collaboration across borders.

This year, a major theme of the conference is the growing threat of cyber crime, and the need for those directly and indirectly involved in cyber security to have an understanding of the scope of the problem and to create global partnerships and collaboration.

New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) is lending its knowledge and special expertise in this field to the conference and is hosting the sessions and panels focused on cyber security at its Manhattan campus. 

To be held on May 2, the cyber security panels will address current challenges, including money laundering and international financial crimes, organized crime, and transparency and accountability. Xiaohui (Sean) Cui, Ph.D. (pictured, top right), assistant professor of Computer Science at NYIT will moderate the “Cyber Security Challenge” panel. It will focus on the multifaceted task of protecting vital public and private computer networks from infiltration and cyber vandalism, and the accompanying challenge of maintaining the openness and freedom which have characterized the Internet.

“We are pleased to collaborate with the U.S. Department of State to help share knowledge on topics vital to global security and information exchange across nations and to create opportunities for professionals to meet, reflect, and discuss international challenges we are facing today,” said Nada Marie Anid, Ph.D. (pictured at right), dean of NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences. NYIT offers a concentration in Internet Security for computer science and information technology majors in addition to a master’s program in Information, Network, and Computer Security, taught by faculty that have been awarded prestigious research grants in biometrics, swarm intelligence, cryptography, mobile, and cyber security.
