Limited Capacity seats available

The pervasive nature of cyber infrastructure and the rapidly increasing connectivity between the cyber and physical worlds have made cyber security a critical issue for citizens, governments, and industry.  From the economy to our physical well-being (i.e., healthcare), we must rely on cyber-enabled services even when they come under attack.   Unfortunately, we cannot reduce the risk of such attacks to zero. The growing complexity of future systems lead to gaps and vulnerabilities that will be exploited by sophisticated adversaries.  To date, cyber security efforts have helped to reduce the risk but have not delivered the level of security we need in personal, corporate, or government systems. 

This session will discuss new approaches to cyber security with a focus on resilience and transatlantic cooperation.  Future systems need to recognize that attacks will be successful and some cyber elements and services will be compromised.  Information security research will move down a transformative path, beyond traditional border defenses to resilience.  The session will focus on several important research areas including data-driven real-time analysis of large-scale threats to networked applications, infrastructure, and services; the development of secure virtual network technology to partition the wide-area Internet to contain these threats; and watchdog technologies to limit the ability of attackers to monetize stolen data.
