Abstract: 

 

Elissa Redmiles, Postdoctoral Researcher, Microsoft Research

Elissa Redmiles is a Postdoctoral Researcher at Microsoft Research and an incoming professor at Princeton University. Elissa’s research interests are broadly in the areas of security and privacy. She uses computational, economic, and social science methods to understand users’ security and privacy decision-making processes, specifically investigating inequalities that arise in these processes and mitigating those inequalities through the design of systems that facilitate safety equitably across users. Elissa is the recipient of a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, a Facebook Fellowship, and the John Karat Usable Privacy and Security Student Research Award.

Matt Bishop, Professor, University of California at Davis

Matt Bishop is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of California at Davis. He works on data sanitization, elections and e-voting systems, policy, formal modeling, the insider threat, and computer and information security education. He co-led the Joint Task Force that developed the ACM/IEEE/ASIS SIGSAC/IFIP WG10.8 Cybersecurity Curricular Guidelines. The second edition of his textbook, "Computer Security: Art and Science," was published in November 2018 by Addison-Wesley Professional. Among other topics, he teaches programing and computer security.

Justin Cappos, Associate Professor, NYU Tandon School of Engineering

Justin Cappos in a NYU professor who focuses on solving real world security problems in practice. He and his students often focus on problems in security, systems, software update systems, and virtualization, with an emphasis on practical research advances that can be used in production.

His research advances are adopted into production use by Docker, git, Python, VMware, automobiles, Cloudflare, Microsoft, Digital Ocean, and most Linux distributions. Due to the practical impact of his work, Justin was named to Popular Science's Brilliant 10 list in 2013.

Melissa Dark, Professor, Purdue University

Dr. Melissa Dark has worked in cybersecurity education for 20 years. Her project span curriculum and instructional development, educational research in cybersecurity, and measurement and program evaluation.
