Assoc. Prof. Dr. İrfan Günsel: Once again, in the light of science, we are making a dream true in our country

Touching upon the importance of scientific cooperation, the Near East University Board of Trustees Chairman Assoc. Prof. Dr. İrfan S.

Along with technological developments, cyber threats and attacks have become more common and sophisticated than ever. Consequently, it becomes a must to rely on a strong and resilient cyber defense. Today, with our valued project partners coming from Turkey, we are realizing a first that is very important for our country and region. We believe that the joint studies to be conducted within the frame of the concluded agreement will provide very significant contributions in ensuring and developing both our country’s and the region’s cyber security infrastructure. As in many other areas, once again, we are experiencing the joy of embodying an outstanding project and making another dream come true in the light of scientific data and methods” said he.
