Last week, CyLab hosted its 13th annual Partners Conference, bringing CyLab’s corporate partners to Carnegie Mellon’s main campus in Pittsburgh, PA. Attendance was limited, exclusively, to representatives of CyLab's corporate partners and Carnegie Mellon University CyLab.

The event allows CyLab industry partners to immerse themselves in CyLab research and establish deeper connections with CyLab faculty and students who are passionate about creating a world in which technology can be trusted.

Tech giant Symantec was one of 22 CyLab partner companies represented at this year’s conference.

“Symantec’s collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University CyLab gives Symantec Research Labs opportunities to engage more deeply with some of the most talented professors and doctoral students in the world,” said Brian Witten, senior director of Symantec Research Labs Worldwide.  “This deeper collaboration through CyLab already produced technologies and talent to help protect Symantec customers around the world.”

This year’s conference agenda was built around research updates from over twenty-five CyLab faculty members, covering thrusts including but not limited to biometrics, usable privacy and security, IoT, software security, machine learning, formal methods and privacy. Each session included panel discussions engaging both presenters and attendees.
