Cybersecurity: 5th Generation of Security

Friday, January 28, 2022 at 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Building E62, 221
100 MAIN ST, Cambridge, MA 02142

Cybersecurity mechanisms to date are inadequate.   Moving Target Defenses ─ the Fourth Generation of Security - while beneficial, is incomplete. Third Generation ─ Tolerance and Survivability - solutions have been characterized as Hope and Pray.  

Data Security grapples with distributed networks for Supply Chains, Remote Work Environments, International Trade, Ransomware, and the Insider Threats.  

Can the next generation of security address cyber challenges of Misaligned Incentives, Information Asymmetry, and Externalities? Is Cybersecurity still a TECHNOLOGY discussion? Will vulnerabilities impose new compliance and monitoring requirements, or drive new information sharing partnerships?  The presentation highlights critical infrastructures, as well as commercial and government perspectives.

Leading the discussion will be:

Everardo Ruiz, Ph.D, SDM ’00 and 
COL (Ret) Robert Banks, Ph.D.

This event is in-person and space is limited. Registration is available via Eventbrite.
