CIFA fosters information assurance and forensics activity at UAlbany

The New York State Center for Information Forensics and Assurance (CIFA) fosters information assurance and forensics activity at UAlbany. It is a partnership of the University at Albany, SUNY, New York State Office of Information Technology Services, and the New York State Police.

CIFA's mission is research and education to better enable practitioners to address real problems in information forensics and assurance, especially in the area of public protection and cyber defense.

Specifically, CIFA:

  • Targets the public sector workforce in an effort to build knowledge resources and practical skills within state and local government.
  • Develops and deploys courseware for academic and professional education programs in related disciplines.
  • Provides a home for multidisciplinary researchers and practitioners developing workable approaches to emerging information forensics and assurance issues and effective methods to facilitate learning and dissemination of these approaches.
