“Cyber Risk Insurance: How to Live With It Because You Can No Longer Live Without It” March 20, 2018

March 7, 2018

Tuesday, March 20, 2018
The Cove at UCI Applied Innovation

In 2017, costs linked to just ransomware attacks worldwide were estimated to exceed $5 Billion, up from $325 Million in 2015. Cyber attacks are a dangerous growth industry and none are immune from risk. Defending against an attack is necessary, but is imprecise, uncertain, and rarely sufficient to stave off liabilities. Insuring against loss from an attack is now a necessary safeguard. We are all targets.

You’re invited to a complimentary program presented by UCI and Newmeyer & Dillion. The evening will commence with a social hour including appetizers, beer, wine & soft drinks. Immediately following join panel members in a salon style discussion moderated by Mr. Bryan Cunningham, Esq. Executive Director of the UCI Cybersecurity Policy & Research Institute (CPRI).

November 8, 2017

Politicians and companies aren’t the only ones interested in that data.

Bryan Cunningham, who heads the Cybersecurity Policy & Research Institute at University of California, Irvine, says a lot of hackers will follow what he calls the Willie Sutton rule.

“[Sutton] robbed banks because that’s where the money is. If it’s known, or easily discoverable, that a particular company is acquiring massive amounts of voter data then I would expect them to be targets,” Cunningham says.

Open Rank Faculty Positions in Cybersecurity

September 27, 2017

The Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences (ICS) at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) is seeking exceptional candidates for two faculty positions at the assistant professor (tenure track) and associate professor (tenured) levels in the area of cybersecurity. However, applicants at a more senior level will also be considered. The two positions are open to all areas of cybersecurity. Of particular interest for one of the positions are candidates with a research interest and track record in both security and software engineering.

In addition to a faculty appointment in one of the departments in ICS, each new faculty member will be affiliated with the Institute for Software Research (ISR) and the Cybersecurity Policy and Research Institute (CPRI), thereby strengthening the ties between the two institutes, as well as creating new opportunities for innovative and multidisciplinary scholarship. ISR addresses socio-technical problems of software engineering. Its members include experts in software engineering as well as human-computer interaction and analysis of computer-supported work. CPRI focuses on legal, policy and technical issues related to cybersecurity and privacy. CPRI is a joint effort among eight schools and divisions across UCI.
