IgniteU NY is pleased to be working with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate Cyber Security Division (CSD) to showcase next-generation cybersecurity technology to be used in New York State and beyond.  The showcase will take place at their event on October 5, 2017.

These next-gen technologies are being made available through the CSD's Transition to Practice (TTP) program.  The TTP program accelerates the transition of promising federally funded technologies into the marketplace through partnerships and commercialization.  DHS Cyber Security Division is actively seeking government or private-sector partners to pilot these technologies in operational settings on a no-cost basis through the TTP program.  

The TTP tools are considered “leap-ahead” beyond current capabilities found in the marketplace.  They have been developed at the nation’s top national laboratories and research universities, such as MITRE, Lincoln Laboratory, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.  They cover a range of critical information security needs, including decision support, trusted cloud security, identity and access management, mobile security, and cyber incident response.  To learn more about the technologies being demonstrated, please see the Transition to Practice Technology Guide (5th cohort technologies, starting on page 7).

This event will feature eight innovative cybersecurity technologies from the 5th cohort that have been developed at laboratories affiliated with the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Defense, Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs), and academia.  Event attendees will hear directly from the research teams that have produced these technologies, and they will have the opportunity to speak with technology investors from private industry about piloting these technologies as well as about other areas of interest for driving further cybersecurity research.  Although the title of the event references the financial sector, the available technologies are widely applicable across multiple industries and critical infrastructure sectors, both public and private.
