Cybersecurity Evaluation and Assurance for IoT-Enabled Systems

April 8, 2019 at 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Location:4359 Mackenzie

Jason Jaskolka will be giving a seminar Hosted by IEEE Women in Engineering Ottawa titled “Cybersecurity Evaluation and Assurance for IoT-Enabled Systems.”

Seminar Abstract:

The advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) has enabled the development of systems capable of collecting and processing vast amounts of data to enhance system operation and/or to predict or tailor user experiences. The development, adoption, and evolution of systems with more complex software and increased connectivity enabled by IoT technologies has led to a new frontier of cybersecurity vulnerabilities from which such systems were previously shielded. As a result, there is an ever-growing need to evaluate and assure the cybersecurity of IoT-enabled systems, and the information that they use, store, and communicate, in the face of cyber-attacks and failures.

In this talk, Dr. Jaskolka will explore the growing range of complex challenges faced when evaluating and assuring the cybersecurity of IoT-enabled systems. Dr. Jaskolka will also discuss the opportunities that this presents in developing new and innovative ways to engineer more secure and trustworthy IoT-enabled systems. In particular, Dr. Jaskolka will present recent advances in addressing system-level cybersecurity evaluation and assurance using an example IoT-enabled system.
