The BU Center for Reliable Information Systems and Cyber Security (RISCS) was founded in 2004 with the purpose of promoting research in system reliability and information security. It does this by utilizing a multi-disciplinary approach across several fields and drawing on the expertise of a dedicated group of faculty researchers and graduate students from several schools and colleges across Boston University. As the complexity of cybersecurity issues grow, so does the need for the research being done at centers like RISCS.
