Networking Attack Modeling for Predictive Cyber Situation Awareness
RIT professor S. Jay Yang is working with the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Security Agency (NSA) on multiple projects related to modeling attack behavior and adopting appropriate security technologies. He has given numerous talks to NSA, Department of Defense (DoD), conferences and industry groups, helping illuminate better methods for modeling, analyzing, and simulating cyber attacks. Yang recently presented a master class on the subject at the 2016 SimTecT in Australasian Simulation Congress, and one of his Ph.D. students, Stephen Moskal, was invited to present to the Military Operations Research Society (MORS) in December 2016. There, Moskal presented his and Yang’s research into knowledge-based decision making for simulating a cyber attack. Students and researchers working with Dr. Yang are on the cutting edge of next generation cyber solutions, striving to offer government and industry a better understanding of cyber attacks.
