Director's Message

Thank you for visiting the website.

Welcome to Howard University Data Science and Cybersecurity Center (DSC2). The center was formed as part of a new initiative at Howard University to create a world-class center for cybersecurity, cyber-event forecasting, cyber-actor behavior understanding, threat intelligence, threat modeling and analysis, cyber resiliency and defense, and data science. This initiative begins with a collaborative cohort of researchers drawn from multiple disciplines to solving the most critical problems related to cybersecurity and data science. It leads and promotes the mission of the College of Engineering and Architecture - to provide faculty and students the opportunity to work on contemporary technological innovation related to cybersecurity that mirrors today’s industry and society.

The center has attracted over $5 million of research funding from US National Science Foundation, US Department of Homeland Security, Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), DoD Research Labs, Industry (Microsoft, Intel, etc.) and private Foundations over the past three years.

Please feel free to browse the web page and let me know if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions. I am looking forward to hearing from you and meeting you in the near future.

Danda B Rawat, PhD, Founding Director
