Northeastern’s ALERT Center and the George J. Kostas Research Insti­tute for Home­land Secu­rity are just two exam­ples of ways in which the uni­ver­sity is leading the way in secu­rity research. From air­port secu­rity, to crit­ical infra­struc­ture pro­tec­tion, and the threats posed by var­ious ter­rorist orga­ni­za­tions, our fac­ulty can address the most pressing issues of the day.
