Yesterday, we held our Workshop on Cybersecurity Risk Analysis for Enterprise Security, at MIT's Sloan School.
The event was sponsored through a grant that we received from the Advanced Cyber Security Center (ACSC): Professors Wayne Burleson of the College of Engineering, Mila Sherman of the Finance Department, and Senay Solak, and I of the Department of Operations and Information Management at UMass Amherst.
The workshop was fabulous with panelists and participants from the ACSC, academia, industry, and government.
The Isenberg School posted a nice news release on our workshop.
Below, I capture some of the highlights through photos of the speakers, panelists, and venue.
I followed with my talk on Network Science and Economics, which can be downloaded, in its entirety, here.
And, as "icing on the cake," I got to meet a Wharton PhD, whose dissertation advisor was Dr. Pat Harker, then the Dean of Wharton. Pat is now the President of the University of Delaware. Her dissertation was on stochastic variational inequalities, so it was extra special to be able to talk with her!
Many excellent research questions were generated and I hope that the great momentum established continues given the importance of the issues raised and discussed!
In order to address the cybersecurity challenges we need private - public partnerships with academia, industry, and government, such as the one that ACSC is building.
Thanks to everyone for such a rewarding day professionally and intellectually!
