Software Engineering Institute


At the CERT Division of Carnegie Mellon’s Software Engineering Institute (SEI), we research and analyze cybersecurity in its many forms. We discover and address software vulnerabilities, develop approaches that measure and mitigate risk, and research how cyber attackers behave. We also research ways to improve incident response practices, investigate ways to identify and mitigate cyber threats from insiders, improve data monitoring for measuring adversary activity, and devise strategies for developing and maintaining a prepared cyber workforce.
