The U.S. Government faces serious threats from sophisticated cyber adversaries who seek to access, compromise, and disrupt systems and the missions they support. The Cyber Analytics and Decision Systems Group strives to improve the security of these government systems through the development and deployment of innovative cyber security solutions that rely on the application of sound scientific and engineering principles and methodologies.

The group develops threat models, measures, and metrics for security; novel analytics for discovery and chracterization of cyber actors; and scalable human-assistive cyber decision support tools. In each of the group's R&D areas, emphasis is placed on realistic data and rigorous experimental evaluation of techniques. Projects are carried out by small, focused, cooperative teams that succeed together by participating in all phases of technical solution development, including problem analysis, innovative solution design, system architecture, solution prototyping and field-testing, and final technology transfer to DoD and intelligence community sponsors or industry.

The Cyber Analytics and Decision Systems Group comprises computer scientists, mathematicians, machine learning researchers and practitioners, system analysts, and security architects who firmly believe they can make a difference in the security of the nation.
