A Mizzou alumnus is acting director of the Cyber Development Directorate for the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), an agency responsible for building out cyber defense capabilities for the U.S. Department of Defense.
Mizzou Engineering faculty will help create a computational hub to both store and process large sets of data for both NextGen and additional collaborative research projects across the UM System.
Cyberdefense is a key piece of Mizzou Engineering’s increased focus and support of research in big data analytics. Keeping data secure is critical for individuals, corporations and public entities around the globe, and Mizzou Engineering’s work in the realm of cybersecurity is world class. But don’t just take our word for it. The National Security […]
While hacking databases is the main way for interested parties to gain users’ personal information, it’s not the only possibility. Intrepid attackers can use perfectly benign means to do so.
MU Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Professor Bill Harrison has long been a prolific researcher in the world of cybersecurity, embedded systems and high-assurance computing.
The highlight of the week for the Mizzou contingent was finishing second in the Student Cyber Challenge, coming in just slightly behind the University of Alabama team. The team earned high marks for their project, “Compartmentalized and Extensible Security Framework for Securing Pre-Existing Systems.”
