First round of Future Enterprise Security Initiative funded projects announced
CyLab’s Future Enterprise Security Initiative is underway as the first round of funded proposals has been announced. The thirteen projects were presented at Carnegie Mellon University during the FutureEnterprise@CyLab Year One Kick-off Meeting on October 27, 2022.
Each project falls under one of the four FutureEnterprise@CyLab key research thrusts:
- AI-driven workflows to automate security analysis and response
- Collaborative capabilities for real-time global visibility for security decision making
- Foundations for understanding cyber risk
- Least-privilege-by-design infrastructure
Funding for the projects is made possible by sponsorships from Amazon Web Services, Aryaka Networks, Bosch, Cisco, Microsoft, Nokia Bell Labs, PNC, and VMware. Sponsors actively worked with FutureEnterprise@CyLab Co-Directors Lujo Bauer and Vyas Sekar on proposal requests and reviews.
During the execution of these projects, faculty will collaborate with FutureEnterprise@CyLab sponsors to develop a suite of novel foundations and technologies, re-imagining ways to achieve security in small- and medium-sized enterprise systems.
“The Future Enterprise Security Initiative brings together a collective of industry leaders who are aligned with our mission and believe these are important problems to solve,” says Sekar.
“Our partners are really engaged. They understand where problems lie and are willing to take the time to help us generate ideas, evaluate proposals, and offer suggestions as to how each project can become even more relevant to the core mission,” says Bauer.
