    CyberEagles

    11 a.m. | Prescott 215
    The Chief Cybersecurity Research Scientist in the National Security Sciences Directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Dr. Stacy Prowell, will be joining the Cyber Eagles to talk to us about what he calls Cautious Optimism. 
    Perfect security is impossible.  That said, what can be done?  There is reason for pessimism in critical system security, but also reason for optimism.  The technologies being developed for commodity IT systems are struggling to secure a world where source code and even machine code are "optimized" by lower levels and treated as advice.  This leads to vulnerabilities where the computer can change the work schedule in unanticipated ways, and this is true even for real-time systems that use commodity processors.  Still, the physical aspects of the systems being controlled offer hope of improved resiliency against threats.
     Who is Dr. Stacy Prowell?
    Stacy is the Chief Cybersecurity Research Scientist in the National Security Sciences Directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where his research focuses on methods to secure the nation’s critical infrastructure.  He has developed technologies for automated reverse engineering of compiled software to detect vulnerabilities, to detect fileless malware remotely, and to detect attacks and compromises using timing and power side channel information.
    Chick Fil A will be provided
