The Many Facets of Cybersecurity Research
Research on Tap: Meet, Greet, and Learn Series
Hosted by Ran Canetti<https://www.bu.edu/hic/profile/ran-canetti/>, Professor, Computer Science, CAS, and Director, Center for Reliable Information Systems & Cyber Security<https://www.bu.edu/riscs/> (RISCS)
In an age of high-profile hacking, mass information breaches, and crippling, daily malware attacks, our ability to keep information safe from harm is more pressing than ever. Join leading BU cybersecurity expert, Ran Canetti, for a discussion that tackles this timely issue through multiple disciplines and approaches, including:
* The engineering of computer systems that are resilient to errors and hacking;
* The design of algorithms that guarantee the privacy and authenticity of information and computations;
* Social issues, such as our expectations for personal privacy, the economic fairness of regulation, and the ubiquity of information systems;
* Economic incentives for consumers and vendors;
* Legal and political issues, such as the tension between liberty and government control and cybersecurity's role in international power struggles;
* And many more.
