MELBOURNE, FLA.—The Harris Institute for Assured Information at Florida Institute of Technology and the Space Coast Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) present a monthly lecture series on security trends and topics. This month’s meeting, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled for July 15, at 6:30 p.m. in the third-floor conference room of the Harris Center for Science and Engineering Building on the Florida Tech campus.
Liam M. Mayron, Ph.D, will speak on Pain as a Feedback Mechanism for Cyberspace Resiliency. “Cyber infrastructure remains vulnerable. Communications systems lack resiliency, as do many natural systems,” said Mayron.
Mayron will take an interdisciplinary, neurotechnological approach to considering resiliency in cyber communications systems. He will reconcile a model for communications systems security with corresponding models of physiological situational awareness and cognitive adaptive goal direction. He also will discuss operational considerations of the approach to achieving resiliency.
Mayron is a member of the Harris Corp. information and knowledge management research group. He received his doctoral and bachelor’s degrees in computer engineering from Florida Atlantic University and a master’s degree from the University of Florida. His research interests include content-based image retrieval, cyber security, biologically-inspired computing, image processing, human and computer vision, and data mining. He has co-authored more than 20 scholarly publications and has several patents pending.
At Harris, Mayron has undertaken a variety of projects in the national intelligence and cyber security domains. He maintains an active collaboration with Florida Tech students and faculty as a member of the Harris Institute for Assured Information, where research includes the investigation of methods to create resilient cyber systems based on cognitive and neuro-physiological models.
The institute provides a forum for local security practitioners to share technical information and innovation.
