The IU Cybersecurity Clinic is a first-of-its-kind initiative driven to enhance the cybersecurity of under-resourced stakeholders, including local municipalities, counties, school corporations, non-profits, and small businesses. The Clinic has dual goals of improving local and state cyber preparedness while training the next generation of cybersecurity professionals and leaders. The Clinic leverages Indiana University's strong tradition of applied, interdisciplinary cybersecurity leadership to provide a much-needed service across the Hoosier State and beyond.
Students participating in the Clinic will work directly with clients to provide on-the-ground cybersecurity expertise to address pressing concerns and help instill legal, technical, governance, and managerial best practices. Alongside the project, students will take a 3-credit substantive course providing an overview of cybersecurity risk management frameworks, cybersecurity and privacy law, incident response management, and best practices for addressing common cybersecurity challenges for organizations. For Cybersecurity MS students, the Clinic can fulfill any concentration requirement. For JD students, the Clinic fulfills the skills requirement.
