Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research (CACR)

A prominent voice in national and global cybersecurity conversations


The Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research (CACR) was established by Indiana University in 2003 to provide the nation with leadership in applied cybersecurity technology, education, and policy guidance.

CACR interweaves technical and policy expertise. Indiana University’s wide range of scholarly expertise forms its foundation in computer science, informatics, accounting and information systems, criminal justice, law, organizational behavior, and public policy. IU operational units’ extensive practical experience in cybersecurity strengthens this foundation.
