Data Science Distinguished Speaker Seminar Series  


Evaluating and assuring the security of software-dependent systems in the face of cyber-attacks and failures is among the top priorities for governments and providers of electric, financial, communication, and other essential services. This demands systematic, evidence-driven approaches for software development, capable of providing early evidence of mitigating security risks, attacks, and vulnerabilities. As a result, it is necessary to incorporate a variety of system security analyses into the system development life cycle to produce data to support engineering and stakeholder decision-making as part of the security evaluation and assurance activities. This is, of course, not without its challenges. In this talk, we will explore the challenges and opportunities of data-driven approaches for security evaluation and assurance. We will provide a brief overview of some of the different research projects that we are undertaking to address these challenges. Our goal is to provide more objective, reproducible, and consistent outcomes that can serve as the evidentiary basis for more effective security assurance of critical software-dependent systems.

About the Speaker

Dr. Jason Jaskolka is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering and the Director of the Cyber Security Evaluation and Assurance (CyberSEA) Research Lab at Carleton University, Ottawa, ON, Canada. He received his Ph.D. in Software Engineering in 2015 from McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada. He is a licensed Professional Engineer in Ontario. His research interests include cyber security evaluation and assurance, threat modelling, security-by-design, and formal methods and data-driven approaches for software and security engineering. He is interested in applying his research to critical infrastructures, industrial control systems, cyber-physical and distributed systems, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
