Getting Started with Cybersecurity ScienceSpeaker: Josiah Dykstra – Severn, MD, United States
Topic(s): Security and Privacy
AbstractThis talk offers an introduction for students and practitioners to the application of the scientific method to cybersecurity tools and systems. Creating, using, and evaluating cybersecurity tools and systems are complex tasks. Many cybersecurity professionals are attracted to the challenges of building these tools and systems, and are motivated to use their expertise to bring sanity and solutions to real-world problems. The addition of scientific thinking aids in dealing with uncertainty, unknowns, choices, and crises. It can improve existing products and lead to groundbreaking innovation and applications. In this talk, we’ll focus on practical, real-world applications of science to the practice of cybersecurity. You’ll learn about scientific principles and flexible methodologies for effective security as you design, execute, and evaluate your own experiments. You’ll discover why the application of science is worth the added effort and you’ll glean insights from specific examples of experimentation in cybersecurity.
