Initiatives

Cybersecurity

Cybercriminals are constantly changing their tactics. The threat is always there – which is why new ways to keep information secure must be continuously researched and developed. That’s where cybersecurity at Seidenberg comes in.
 
Seidenberg is home to the Seidenberg Cybersecurity Institute and is one of the first schools in the New York Metropolitan Area to be designated a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (IAE) by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security.
 
Our cybersecurity research is funded by government agencies, including the Department of Defense, the Army Research Office and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Recent funding from the Department of Defense has gone toward mobile forensic research and skimmer fraud.
 
With only a small number of cybersecurity specialists currently operating in an industry that has thousands of positions to fill, cybersecurity is a growing industry with many opportunities.
 
In response to this critical moment in the present and future of cybersecurity the Seidenberg School recognizes the demand and offers opportunities for global and local corporations to partner with the University.
 

Health and Telemedicine

Telemedicine is a revolutionary new direction in health care that delivers medical expertise at a distance. Using exciting new technologies, patients can connect with medical specialists instantly via the web. This means that no matter where you’re located, when you or your loved ones face an emergency, you’ll be able to access the best care around – whether it’s in a different state or even a different country.

From putting people in need in touch with experts in their field to providing medical advice and service to populations with poor access to health care providers, telemedicine is a ground-breaking and quickly expanding industry.  

At Seidenberg, we work to address the technical, business, legal, policy, and strategic issues surrounding telehealth. By doing so, we can support the implementation of telehealth services, incorporating on-site/off-site personnel and the application of data mining and other emerging technologies.

 

Educational Approaches using Emerging Computing Technologies

The way education is administered is advancing. More and more students and professors are turning to the web and various technologies to teach, study and learn instead of the traditional classroom setting. Completing degrees online is becoming common, and now is a crucial time for research and development in this field.

According to US News and World Report, Pace University ranked #1  for its Online Bachelor’s Degree programs, NACTEL  and iPace.  Pace also placed #13 for Best Online Graduate Computer Information Technology Programs.

Our research in new educational approaches using emerging computing technologies goes toward evolving collaborations with corporations and other educational institutions, digital learning places and new tools for education in our work with adult learners, k-12 education professionals, corporate and community partners.
 

Distributed Teams

Successful software development today is as much about the social and team aspect as it is about the process and technology involved. A major trend in today’s software development industry is the move toward more distributed forms of working. With the need to reduce development costs, increase the speed of delivery, and improve quality, software products are now increasingly engineered through collaborations by people, organizations, and countries.

There are many issues facing globally distributed software development projects. Economic, technical, organizational, cultural, legal, and communications issues form a  challenging yet rewarding environment for those involved.  

Pace University has been pursuing research on distributed teams and providing global software development experience for students by partnering with universities abroad. It’s an exciting time for software development, and students benefit from gaining global experience through applied education utilizing distributed teams business models.
