  • Despite considerable activity and attention, the overall state of information security continues to get worse. Attacks are increasing, fraud and theft are rising, and losses may exceed $100 billion per year worldwide. Many factors contribute to this, including misplaced incentives for industry, a lack of attention by government, ineffective law enforcement, and an uninformed image of who the perpetrators really are. As a result, many of the intended attempts at solutions are of limited (if any) overall effectiveness. This presentation will illustrate some key aspects of the cyber security problem and its magnitude, as well as provide some insight intomore » causes and enabling factors. The talk will conclude with some observations on how the computing community can help improve the situation, as well as some suggestions for 'cyber self-defense.'« less
  • May Chaffin is one of many Idaho National Laboratory researchers who are helping secure the nation's critical infrastructure from cyber attacks.Lots more content like this is available at INL's facebook page http://www.facebook.com/idahonationallaboratory.
  • Oral presentation in English, slides in English. We will show you how and why cyber-criminals attack your computers: their motives, methods and tools.
  • The Cyber Tracer Program at Sandia National Laboratories develops methods to prevent, counter and minimize cyber-attacks and protect valuable digital assets in the interest of national security.
  • The Neuromorphic Cyber Microscope provides security analysts with unprecedented visibility of their network, computer and storage assets. This processor is the world's first practical implementation of neuromorphic technology to a major computer science mission. Working with Lewis Rhodes Labs, engineers at Sandia National Laboratories have created a device that is orders of magnitude faster at analyzing data to identify cyber-attacks.
