Faculty and students are invited to attend the Brown Bag Seminar series to listen to leading researchers from National Laboratories discuss their research in the Data Analysis, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, and Cyber Security. You are welcome to bring your lunch and listen to this noon-time seminar series. It is also a great opportunity for faculty to investigate possible collaboration with National Labs investigators.

SECURE: SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING OF CYBERSECURITY BY UNCERTAINTY QUANTIFICATION AND RIGOROUS EXPERIMENTATION

Securing cyber systems is paramount, but cyber defenders lack evidence-based techniques required to make high-consequence decisions. The 2016 Federal Cybersecurity R&D Strategic Plan states: “Most [cybersecurity] techniques are domain- and context-specific, often not validated as mathematically and empirically sound, and rarely consider efficacy and efficiency. Thus, the state of the practice consists of heuristic techniques, informal principles and models of presumed adversary behavior, and process-oriented metrics.” This plan emphasizes a need for evidence-based approaches to cybersecurity, which employ principled and rigorous measurements and models. These approaches provide a foundation for understanding the limitations on available data and measurability of cyber activities and developing risk management strategies against malicious activities. SECURE will discover and develop techniques for evidence-based cybersecurity, leveraging the cyber experimental foundation provided by Emulytics (a scalable, virtualized environment for modeling cyber systems) to produce quantitative knowledge concerning a target system, estimate cybersecurity risks, and identify defensive strategies.
