DHS to showcase cybersecurity research

The Department of Homeland Security funds a variety of cybersecurity research through academia, small businesses, industry and government and national labs. On Feb. 17-19, DHS will showcase some of the results of that funding.

The 2016 Cyber Security Division R&D Showcase and Technical Workshop, held in Washington, D.C., will highlight the status of the latest cybersecurity research, enable collaboration among the researchers and government agencies and connect the technologies to transition partners. 

The showcase will feature 10 innovative technology solutions from the Cyber Security Division’s portfolio that have potential for commercialization.  The workshop portion will feature over 70 presentations, highlighting the work of Cyber Security Division’s principal investigators. Topics to be covered include:

  • Cybersecurity research infrastructure
  • Human-centric cybersecurity
  • Identity management and data privacy
  • Network and system security
  • Software assurance
  • Trustworthy cyber infrastructure

Both events are open to both public and private sector cybersecurity professionals. Those interested in attending can register here.
