SAVE THE DATE 
GUEST PRESENTATION TALK ON CYBER SECURITY
May 5, 2017, 10 AM - 12 PM in Room A436
This presentation counts as 2 seminars for SA members.

DR. ROBERT MITCHELL 
Research Scientist from Sandia National Laboratories

Recent Cyber Security Events and Future Research Directions
For this talk, Dr. Mitchell will compare and contrast some of the highest profile, publicly acknowledged, cyber attacks of the past year. 
He will highlight the target of interest, brand of attacker, primary objective, overall impact, key techniques employed and defensive lessons
learned for each of these incidents. The audience will take away an increased and fact-based awareness of last year’s most influential cyber attacks, and a vision of the emerging cyber security research areas and methods.


Recent Developments in Linkography Based Cyber Security
Dr. Mitchell’s team proposes human and machine performed linkography to detect, correlate, attribute and predict attacker behavior andpresent a moving, deceptive target.  Recently, his team generated a technology transfer strategy for linkography based cyber security, proposed algorithms to extract and refine linkograph ontologies and subsessions our input stream and completed  our previous related machine learning work. Linkography has been in the literature for decades, and our investigation indicates it is an open, fertile topic for basic and applied cyber security research.
