Research Summary

Stuart Madnick finds ways to integrate information systems to provide organizations with a more global view of their operations. He is also involved in introducing new types of "aggregator" Internet applications-on-line applications that accumulate and synthesize information. A current project he's working on identifies new technologies for gathering and analyzing information from many different sources, including conventional databases and the World Wide Web. Madnick is testing these new technologies in the financial services, manufacturing, logistics, counter-terrorism, and transportation industries.

    Cybersecurity Governance and Culture

    Hardly a week goes by without a report about another cyberattack. With almost every major organization having been victim, including most government organizations, such Target, Sony, NSA, US Office of Personnel Management, why would you expect your organization to be immune? By many projections, the worse is yet to come. Although much progress is being made in improving hardware and software, studies have reported that between 50-70% of all cyberattacks are aided or abetted by insiders (usually unintentionally), so understanding the cybersecurity governance and organizational culture is increasingly important. In this session, we will discuss the managerial, organizational, and strategic aspects of cybersecurity with an emphasis on the protection of the nation's critical infrastructure.
