SMU engineering team to lead DARPA-funded research into holographic imaging of hidden objects

Figure_ExtensionToAdaptiveMultiApertureApproaches[1] Researchers from SMU’s Lyle School of Engineering will lead a multi-university team funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to build a theoretical framework for creating a computer-generated image of an object hidden from sight around a corner or behind a wall. The core of the proposal is to develop a computer algorithm to unscramble the light that bounces off irregular surfaces to create a holographic image of hidden objects.

Survey finds executive cybersecurity decisions are evolving from compliance to proactive cyber-risk management

cybersecurity, IBM, SMU, chang, A new research study from SMU’s Darwin Deason Institute for Cyber Security finds that executives are changing the way they manage and invest in cybersecurity, moving away from limited, reactive approaches and adopting systemic risk management frameworks that combine hardware, software and operations protocols to mitigate cyber risk. The study, Identifying How Firms Manage Cybersecurity Investment (HYPERLINK STUDY TO TITLE), was sponsored by IBM Security and based on a semi-structured survey of 40 executives across financial, retail, healthcare and government sectors. Participants, most of whom were chief information security officers (CISOs), were selected primarily from large firms.
