The mission of the Security and Software Engineering Research Center at Georgetown (S²ERC) is to conduct a program of applied and basic research on software security, system security and software technology problems of interest to its members. The S²ERC is about connecting people and bringing the world closer together through new technologies, policy, law, and economics around communication technology. The goal of this research is to enable security and software technology gains within member organizations and to protect the security and stability of our public networks.

The NSF awarded Georgetown a grant to become a site for the NSF-sponsored S²ERC, joining Virginia Tech and Ball State University. You will find more information in the following pages.

On behalf of Georgetown and the other S²ERC university sites and current affiliates, I invite you to promote and eventually join a research center that can change the way you do business. As S²ERC grows beyond its 30th year of operation and Georgetown passes its 225th year, we look forward to you joining our center. For more information, please contact the Center Managing Director, Paul Brigner.
