Upcoming Seminar on Embedded Cybersecurity by Kevin Kornegay

SPLICE PI, Kevin Kornegay, will present at the UCSF-Stanford CERSI-FDA Distinguished Speaker Series on Cybersecurity for Biomedical Engineering on Thursday February 17th, 2022 from 12:00pm – 1:00pm EST.

Abstract: Biomedical engineering students learn how to ensure the safety and effectiveness of medical products ranging from medical devices to pharmaceutical products. Today, that advanced degree skill set must include embedded cybersecurity because of endemic cyber threats to technology inside medical products. A lot can be learned from advances in Internet of Things (IoT) security education and research. The mission of the Cybersecurity Assurance and Policy (CAP) Center at Morgan State University is to provide the defense and intelligence community with the knowledge, methodology, solutions, and highly skilled cybersecurity professionals to mitigate penetration and manipulation of our nation’s cyber-physical infrastructure. The Internet of Things (IoT) permeates all areas of life and work, with unprecedented economic effects. The IoT is a network of dedicated physical objects (things) whose embedded system technology senses or interacts with its internal state or external environment. Embedded systems perform dedicated functions within larger mechanical or electrical systems. Critical infrastructures in transportation, smart grid, manufacturing, and health care, etc. are highly dependent on embedded systems for distributed control, tracking, and data collection. While it is paramount to protect these systems from hacking, intrusion, and physical tampering, current solutions rely on a patchwork of legacy systems, and this is unsustainable as a long-term solution. Transformative solutions are required to protect these systems. In this talk, we will present our current research that addresses security vulnerabilities in IoT ecosystems to provide secure, resilient, and robust operation.
