Symposium for Resilient Cyber Systems
1st International Symposium on Resilient Cyber Systems

Keynote Speakers

Dr. Thomas Longstaff, National Security Agency
Tom Longstaff Dr. Tom Longstaff is currently on a two-year assignment as the Technical Director of the Systems Behavior office within the DOD National Security Agency. Prior to coming to NSA in 2012, Tom was the Chief Scientist for the Cyber Missions Branch of the Applied Physics Laboratory (APL). Tom joined APL in 2007 to work with a wide variety of infocentric operations projects on behalf of the U.S. Government to include technology transition of cyber R&D, information assurance, intelligence, and global information networks.

Tom is currently the chair of the Computer Science, Information Assurance, and Information Systems Engineering Programs within the Whiting School at The Johns Hopkins University. Tom's academic publications span topics such as malware analysis, information survivability, insider threat, intruder modeling, and intrusion detection. He maintains an active role in the information assurance community and regularly advises organizations on the future of network threat and information assurance. Tom is also a fellow of the International Information Integrity Institute and editor of the IEEE Security & Privacy magazine.

Prior to coming to APL, Tom was the deputy director for technology for the CERT at Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute. In his 15-year tenure at CERT, Tom helped to create many of the projects and centers that enabled CERT to become an internationally recognized network security organization. His work included assisting the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies to use response and vulnerability data to define and direct a research and operations program in analysis and prediction of network security and cyber terrorism events.

Dr. Vipin Swarup, MITRE
Vipin Swarup Dr. Vipin Swarup is the Chief Scientist for Mission Assurance in MITRE's Cyber Security Division. He leads MITRE's corporate cybersecurity research program focused on mission assurance against advanced cyber threats, which includes over 25 research projects in mobile computing security, cloud computing security, network security, cyber analytics, active cyber defense, and resiliency.

In the past, Dr. Swarup has led research projects in trust management, cross-boundary information sharing, context-aware security, security guards, and mobile agent security, and has published extensively in these and other areas. His work for agencies such as AFRL, NSA, DARPA, and OSD have resulted in significant outcomes. His security guard filter technology, called Felt, has been integrated and deployed on several military security guard products worldwide. In 2008, he played a lead role on a US Department of Defense (DOD) team that developed a DOD Science and Technology (S&T) strategy for cyber conflict defense against advanced cyber threats -- based on this strategy, DOD substantially reshaped its funding priorities in cybersecurity research.

Dr. Swarup holds a B.Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, and an MS and Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Dr. Doug Tygar, UC Berkeley
Doug Tygar Dr. Doug Tygar is Professor of Computer Science at UC Berkeley and also a Professor of Information Management at UC Berkeley. He works in the areas of computer security, privacy, and electronic commerce. His current research includes privacy, security issues in sensor webs, digital rights management, and usable computer security. His awards include a National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award, an Okawa Foundation Fellowship, a teaching award from Carnegie Mellon, and invited keynote addresses at PODC, PODS, VLDB, and many other conferences.

Doug Tygar has written three books; his book Secure Broadcast Communication in Wired and Wireless Networks (with Adrian Perrig) is a standard reference and has been translated to Japanese. He designed cryptographic postage standards for the US Postal Service and has helped build a number of security and electronic commerce systems including: Strongbox, Dyad, Netbill, and Micro-Tesla. He served as chair of the Defense Department's ISAT Study Group on Security with Privacy, and was a founding board member of ACM's Special Interest Group on Electronic Commerce. He helped create and remains an active member of TRUST (Team for Research in Ubiquitous Security Technologies). TRUST is a new National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center with headquarters at UC Berkeley and involving faculty from Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Stanford, and Vanderbilt.

Before coming to UC Berkeley, Dr. Tygar was tenured faculty at Carnegie Mellon's Computer Science Department, where he continues to hold an Adjunct Professor position. He received his doctorate from Harvard and his undergraduate degree from Berkeley.
