Founded in 2009 by a grant from L3Harris Corporation, the L3Harris Institute brings together computer science, psychology, business and biology to carry out cutting-edge research in computer security. Our goals are lofty: to change the way we think about the information that flows around us, and to help drive a fundamental shift in how we protect it.The L3Harris Institute for Assured Information represents the shared vision of many different people in the Information Assurance community. The Institute was formed by a gift from L3Harris Corporation, with a purpose to benefit the community both locally in Brevard County and internationally by raising the "state of the art" in Information Assurance.
Trust, Safety, Integrity. These are all words that describe how we would like to think our computer systems work. But they don't work that way. Malware and inadvertent vulnerabilities have placed our systems under continuous assault - and led people to distrust the digital technology designed to improve our lives.The ability to trust the information we're sharing; the ability to create collaborations seamlessly and know the participants; the ability to understand the implications of our actions. These are all necessary in today's digital world. The L3Harris Institute for Assured Information is an interdisciplinary center that focuses on high-risk disruptive work aimed at helping us trust the information that we so often rely on.
