New England is unique in having a combination of leading corporations and universities in technology, business management, finance, law, economics, psychology, medicine and other areas critical to defending against the cyber security threat.
In this presentation, we will discuss:
The Advanced Cyber Security Center and its evolving R+D and education collaborations between industry, universities and government, and
A few examples of ACSC research projects that focus on interdisciplinary approaches to large cyber security problems. The first example involves the integration of cyber security risk into an overall enterprise risk framework. The second involves techniques to analyze very large and volatile data sets while meeting constraints imposed by privacy and security regulations."
