Future-proofing enterprise security against evolving threats
To address global enterprise security challenges, CyLab is launching a multi-year, interdisciplinary research program, called the Future Enterprise Security Initiative (FutureEnterprise@CyLab), with a singular, ambitious mission: rethinking security across enterprise ecosystems through innovations in artificial intelligence, computer science, engineering, and human-factors research.
Enterprises are evolving across the board.
Can we ensure that the operational security postures of ALL enterprises in future scenarios are comparable to the select few “hyperscale operations” that have large security teams and global-scale visibility into threats?
Through the multi-year Initiative, CyLab intends to develop a suite of novel foundations and technologies that address the above challenges, and re-imagine enterprise systems along the following four key thrusts:
AI-driven workflows to automate security management and data-driven decision-making to minimize the need for large human teams;
Collaborative capabilities to effectively get real-time and global visibility comparable to the hyperscalers;
Foundations for understanding cyber risk and dependencies in complex ecosystems and supply chains; and
Least-privilege-by-design infrastructure, including trustworthy outsourcing, remote work/management, and deployable software-defined architectures.
