our project, Cybersecurity Risk Analysis and Investment Optimization, was funded.
Our project team is interdisciplinary, and consists of Professors Wayne Burleson of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mila Getmansky Sherman of Finance, Senay Solak, and yours truly of the Operations & Information Management Department, of the Isenberg School of Management, and Chris Misra, of the OIT Department -- all of us at UMass Amherst.
The Project Synopsis:
The vision of this project was to develop:
- rigorous models for cybersecurity risk,
- models for costs and benefits of various cybersecurity technologies,
- techniques for integrating these models into higher level models that account for other risks and risk management expenditures.

The invitation to submit a paper to the invited session came from Dr. Alla Kammerdiner, whom I met at a marvelous conference in Yalta, Ukraine.
The session information is here.
Dr. Kammerdiner I wrote about earlier in this blog -- she had run the Boston Marathon that was the site for the terrorist attack last April 15.
