The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 will fund a project designed to protect the privacy and security of business information systems and data centers from cyberattacks. More than $1 million will be awarded over three years to Pennsylvania State University researcher Peng Liu, George Mason University researcher Sushil Jajodia, and Western Illinois University researcher Meng Yu.
The researchers hope to accelerate customer and supplier services and to ensure secure business information. They will attempt to combine four areas of data security--redundancy, detection and analysis of microscopic intrusion, automatic response, and diversity-driven protection. The researchers say the project could lead to stronger security measures in the business world, increased efficiency in customer and supplier service, and improved data protection in the wake of cyberattacks.
"This grant will enable us to take a big stride forward towards building self-protecting and trustworthy information systems and data sets," Liu says. "This project will 'stand on the shoulders' of our recent research achievements in trusted recovery, self-healing information systems, and intrusion-tolerant computing."
