Our Mission

Cyberspace is fundamental to our national prosperity, as it is critical to 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 dialog between academia, industry, nonprofits, and government. This intersectionality enables a creative, unique and holistic means of understanding the phenomena of cyberattacks and cybersecurity.

We offer free social engineering projects and a popular critical infrastructure ransomware dataset for download that can be (and have been) used by students, educators, industry, and government across multiple sectors.

The CARE Lab is committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts and embraces the “cybersecurity is for everyone” mindset.
