Cybersecurity is a constant challenge facing many aspects of our society. Society seemingly has an insatiable thirst for more and more cyber capabilities that is accelerating at an increasingly rapid pace. We eagerly adopt new cyber capabilities in the name of efficiency, convenience, entertainment, and even safety, but often do so without considering the increased risk we assume. This webinar will provide an overview of key topics in computer security with an emphasis on research and development. Security is a wide field, encompassing network security, operating system security, language-based security, forensics, privacy, as well as legal and policy issues. We will describe technical topics and opportunities. We will cover these varied topics, drawing on expertise from industry and academia. The broad goal of the webinar is to increase awareness in the field of cyber security research and development and to ultimately increase the number of women and underrepresented minorities in computer security research.
