Sr. Research Scientist in Cybersecurity and Security, Global Resilience Institute
The National Transportation Safety Board investigates airline and surface transportation incidents and rapidly disseminates findings to transportation providers to prevent other, similar incidents. The idea of replicating this capability for cyber incidents was first surfaced in 1991 and has been repeated many times over the last three decades. This project is focused on how to move the concept of an NTSB for cybersecurity closer to implementation.
GRI has received a small grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to hold a workshop on the concept in the Spring of 2020. For more information, please contact email@example.com
