Cybr’s New XSS Course Badge Gets Added to NYU Cyber Fellows Program

NYU XSS Badge banner

We are pleased to announce that our newest course, Cross-Site Scripting (XSS): The 2021 Guide, is the newest available NYU Cyber Fellows badge being issued by NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering Cyber Fellows program!   

NYU Cybersecurity students can take our Introduction to Application Security course and obtain our co-branded course badge. Once they complete that course, NYU Cyber students will be encouraged to complete our newest course on another super important Application Security topic: Cross-Site Scripting, in which case they will receive an additional co-branded course badge.

Cybr is an NYU Tandon School of Engineering Cybersecurity Partner

We’re happy to be one of the NYU Cybersecurity Industry Partners providing cybersecurity courses and materials to supplement NYU’s Cyber Fellows program and curriculum. 

Industry Partner courses are offered to provide supplemental instruction, learning experiences, and hands-on training to benefit students in their program. Students demonstrate their commitment to becoming leaders in the field and satisfy their unquenchable thirst for knowledge by investing time outside of class to complete courses from industry partners.  Once a course is complete, they receive a co-branded badge as evidence of course completion and the new knowledge and skills they built.

“Cybersecurity is generally thought of as the implementation of strategies to protect computer systems or the Internet against viruses or fraud. Yet, in actual practice, cybersecurity is not one discipline, but an integrated network of technological, legal, and social issues. The Center for Cybersecurity embraces ‘problem-driven research’ in all aspects of the profession. Research initiatives begin by identifying an issue: a privacy concern, an existing gap in a security framework, or a growing threat of truly fake news aided by doctored images.” 

The NYU Center for Cybersecurity is currently focused on conducting research and makes contributions in the following areas:

  • Cybercrime – Research initiatives have addressed strategies for mapping and disrupting cybercrime networks, and legal and policy interventions that can deter criminal networks from raising, storing, moving, and using funds.
  • Cyber Governance – When it comes to cybersecurity, who is responsible for developing and enforcing policies to adequately address current and future risks? Their work on cyber governance aims to identify the appropriate roles and obligations of various stakeholders—including private companies and government agencies. This includes issues of technical capacity, the regulatory environment, and commercial incentives.
  • Cyber Strategy – As cybersecurity is still a young discipline, many of the strategic frameworks that will define it are still in formation. CCS research is working to sharpen the boundaries between cybersecurity and intelligence authorities, the ways in which cyber capabilities are integrated into larger strategic structures, and the development of international laws and norms.
  • Security of Cyberphysical Systems – Cyberphysical systems are mechanical systems that are monitored and controlled by computers. Attacks aimed at cyberphysical systems can have catastrophic effects on electric power generation and delivery, traffic flow management, public health, national and economic security, and more. Our work focuses on enhancing the security and resilience of these systems.
  • Software and System Security – Securing systems and the software that powers them requires a multitude of approaches. Current research initiatives at CCS address virtualization security, memory forensics, embedded systems, data compression, security and human behavior, and the delivery of secure updates to repositories, automobiles, and other smart devices. A common thread among all these initiatives is that they are based on deployments in real world systems. In addition, CCS projects have empirically measured the security and privacy of technology systems and their intersections with society. These latter initiatives address security and privacy issues with great societal impact, such as censorship, online harassment, and the protection of vehicular systems.
  • Digital Forensics – As our society has been transformed into a “digital world,” where most information is created, captured, transmitted, stored, and processed in digital form, it has also spawned a new way to preserve, collect, validate, identify, analyze, interpret, document, and present digital evidence. In addition to fostering the development of these emerging technologies, there may also be a need to set parameters for their use, both legally and ethically.
  • Supply Chain Security – In the computer science field, security has generally been piecemeal in nature, rather than a holistic operation that can guarantee the security of a project from end to end. Two different CCS initiatives are now tackling the need to secure the supply chain when creating hardware and/or software.
