Title: The need for strategic cyber systems analysis

Abstract: Cybersecurity firms often focus on defending a single aspect of a system against a particular vulnerability or class of vulnerabilities. An equally important but often ignored aspect of cybersecurity is in developing holistic strategies that promote end-to-end system hardening. Such strategic systems analysis demands novel models of entire systems and quantitative methods leading to measures, methods, and recommendation or decision support systems. Strategic analysis does not require highly specialized knowledge in software reversing, crypto, or hardware engineering, but broad-based knowledge in quantitative modeling, probability and statistics, and computational algorithms. This talk will explore problems Tenet3's R&D group is facing like massive scale subgraph matching, game theory driven decision making, streaming anomaly detection, knowledge management, machine learning, and economical security assessment to enable strategic cyber system analysis.

Refreshments are available at 3:00 PM in SC 313F.

The department colloquia are held every Thursday (excluding holidays) at 3:35 pm in room SC 323 unless otherwise noted. All are invited to attend.
