“Securing the Cybersphere” spotlights recent and emerging research, strategies, and best practices in systems assurance and mobile and web security using academic, industry, and government points of view. The event covers new ground for cybersecurity needs and resources as Syracuse University faculty present their unique research, performed in conjunction with JP Morgan Chase (JPMC) and the Air Force Research Laboratory. Invited guests learn about uncommon hidden risks present in commercial systems and a need to request the utmost in cyber protection from their current data suppliers.

The forum will address:

  • Systems assurance in financial sectors, using examples from SU’s partnership with JPMC.
  • Key principles for design and implementation of cybersecurity on mobile platforms.
  • Assurance and security modules for critical data transfers.
  • Malware analysis for prevention and defense of data attacks.
  • Addressing issues of cyber law and policy to design and prove systems assurance.


Syracuse University faculty researchers are particularly active in areas in which there is a need for high confidence that a system behaves correctly and securely, such as in defense and national security operations, medical record systems, banking and financial institutions, and critical infrastructure.
