Pace University promotes education, research, and outreach in the field of security and information assurance. Faculty members from the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems work together to explore the challenges of securing information in areas ranging from software to networks to ethics.

Pace's Information Assurance Education and Research Center was developed to explore computer vulnerabilities with the objective of improving prevention and detection techniques through research.

Pace's goal is to become one of the leading academic institutions for research in the field of information security. Pace works collectively with local and distant academic institutions through shared curriculum and shared faculty. Pace offers several of its security courses through a distance learning program.
