The Future of Cybersecurity is at A&M-Central Texas

Texas A&M University - Central Texas has been recently awarded a $ 4.2 million Cybersecurity contract from the Department of Homeland Security and the United States Air Force. The primary investigator and co-investigator responsible for the contract are Drs. Anitha Chennamaneni and Taylor Harvey.

The scope of this new research award is to protect cyber infrastructure from unintended manipulation of hardware and software, specifically for cyberattacks targeting integrated circuits (ICs), Internet of things (IoT) devices, and cyber physical systems. Our work uses scanning electron microscopy, electrical testing, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning  to develop novel cyber-attack detection methods and new computing techniques in Cybersecurity.
