Speaker information

Dr Shari Lawrence Pfleeger, Director of Research for the Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection, Dartmouth College, Shari Lawrence Pfleeger is Director of Research for the Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection at Dartmouth College. She joined the I3P after serving for almost nine years as a senior researcher at the RAND Corporation. Previously, she headed Systems/Software, Inc., a consultancy specializing in software engineering and technology. She has been a developer and maintainer for real-time, business-critical software systems, a principal scientist at MITRE Corporation's Software Engineering Center, and manager of the measurement program at the Contel Technology Center. She has also held several research and teaching positions at universities world-wide.

Abstract: Traditionally, cyber security has been studied from a single perspective, often computer science or mathematics. However, in recent years, cyber security problems have been examined from multiple perspectives, adding economics, law, policy, education, psychology, sociology and anthropology to the mix. In this talk, Pfleeger will discuss several ways in which multidisciplinary cyber security research provides new insights and yields innovative, effective solutions to a wide variety of problems.
