DHS to Demo Cyber Projects in Silicon Valley; Michael Pozmantier Comments

DHS - ExecutiveMosaicThe Department of Homeland Security plans to offer hardware and software cybersecurity ideas to Silicon Valley investors at an Aug. 22 event in California, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.

Jason Miller writes officials for DHS’ $4.5 million Transition to Practice program will present eight projects from Energy Department laboratories across the country.

DHS will present Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s MLSTONES malware detector; PathScan, an intrusion detection system from the Los Alamos National Laboratory; and Net_Mapper, a network management tool being developed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

“We are really interested in getting technologies out that traditionally haven’t made it out from the federal lab into the market where they can have the most benefit for the cybersecurity of the nation, Michael Pozmantier, program manager under the DHS science and technology directorate, told the station.

The one-day event will include demonstrations, followed by face-to-face meetings between the technology researchers and members of the audience.

Miller reports rogram directors will present energy, government and financial technologies at future events in Houston, Washington and New York.
