"Research partnerships like this are essential for staying one step ahead of cyber threats"

"Drexel and George Mason Universities were selected from a number of outstanding academic research proposals for their approach and understanding of the challenges in securing cyber physical systems," said Lee Holcomb, president of the Cyber Security Research Alliance and director, engineering and technology, for Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions.

"Research partnerships like this are essential for staying one step ahead of cyber threats," said Spiros Mancoridis, Ph.D., a professor in Drexel University's College of Computing & Informatics, and Cybersecurity Institute. "University-based research centers like Drexel's Cybersecurity Institute and George Mason's International Cyber Center offer a broad base of academic insight that will be a valuable resource to the Cyber Security Research Alliance."

"We're looking forward to teaming with the CSRA on this important initiative in the exciting and ever-changing field of cyber physical systems," said Arun Sood, Ph.D., professor, computer science and director, International Cyber Center at George Mason University.

CSRA recently led a panel discussion to address cyber security R&D imperatives in cyber physical systems and introduce these two research efforts at the 2014 Cybersecurity Innovation Forum, a three-day event sponsored by the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) with the Department of Homeland Security, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the National Security Agency. The forum brought together industry and government experts to discuss the threat landscape and share emerging practices and technologies and to create opportunities for industry growth and research opportunities.
