Enhance cybersecurity awareness and survivability for DoD, industry partners, and academia in the face of the ever-increasing threat of cyber attacks. Cybersecurity (CS) includes managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information and the systems and processes used for those purposes, including analog and physical form. CS includes information availability, identification and authentication, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation as well as the economic considerations with respect to selection of CS techniques, CS processes, and industry trends.
The Need For A Breakthrough In Cybersecurity
The cybersecurity industry is growing fast. According to Strategic Cyber Ventures (via Forbes), venture capitalists (VCs) poured an unprecedented $5.3 billion of funding into cybersecurity companies in 2018. Yet during the same time period, the number of security breaches increased exponentially, and the amount of exposed data resulted in a crisis of global scale. According to the U.S. Identity Theft Resource Center, the number of breaches grew from 783 in 2014, an already frightening number, to a peak of 1,632 in 2017.
