The U.S. Department of Homeland Security will hold an event on Tuesday to showcase agency-backed research and development work on information technology security tools, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.
Jason Miller writes DHS’ science and technology organization chose 11 industry partners to demonstrate their cybersecurity technologies and commercialization strategies at the event.
“We have been funding a lot of efforts over the last three or four years, and we’ve opened our opportunities up to the international community so we felt like we should do this in an open environment to show what’s available,” Doug Maughan, director of DHS S&T’s cybersecurity division, told the radio station.
The R&D Showcase program will feature software and hardware for Internet attack modeling, identity management, cyber forensics and software quality assurance, according to the station.
DHS and the Food and Drug Administration recently co-hosted a workshop to gather public input on measures to safeguard medical devices against cyber threats.
