Cyber Operations and Analysis Technology
The U.S. government faces serious threats from sophisticated cyber adversaries who seek to access and disrupt systems and missions. We improve the security of these government systems through the development and deployment of innovative cybersecurity solutions. In particular, our group develops quantitative threat models to inform our cyber systems analyses and prototypes cyber defense techniques. We employ novel analytics to help us discover and characterize cyber threats. Our researchers have developed scalable cyber decision support tools that are used by the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community.
