Session Information

Risk Analysis for Financial Banking and Processing using Artificial Intelligence
Thursday, June 7, 2018 3:30 p.m. - 4:15 p.m.
Financial banking industry processes billions of transactions every day. There is a great need of cyber professionals who possess both advanced protection skills and knowledge of industry standards such as PCI/DSS, FISMA, ISO, and GDPR. Currently, most cybersecurity programs do not cover financial sector KSAs. On the other hand, financial majors are not rigid enough to undertake advanced security tasks.

We use visual mapping technology to map PCI/DSS and ISO 13569 with the NICE framework and store the mappings in a SQL Server database. We then use the DevSecOps and HiSPO approaches to examine the company's security policy and make recommendations.

The companies we are collaborating with have been offering internships and full-time employments. Now a pipeline has been established for students to study cybersecurity with financial banking processing focus, to do the summer internship at the financial instructions, and ultimately to work for the companies.

He was the Director of the Center for Security Studies at UMUC and the CIO/CTO of National BioMedical Research Foundation. Paul’s research areas are secure architecture, IoT/CPS, risk analysis and video indexing. In 2013, he published a book entitled Computer Architecture and Security by Wiley.

Dr. Wang has conducted research on secure authentication and IoT security by deciphering the encrypted commands and by capturing traffic including Over-the-Air updates. Recently, Wang has acquired a National Security Agency (NSA) grant to develop an intelligent tool helping academia, industry and government to develop cybersecurity training/curriculum.

From 2014 to 2017, Dr. Wang conducted research using Department of Defense developed technology –xAPI on a SCADA network that contains more than 3,000 PLCs. This research has been widely published, and presented at national and international conferences including the IoT Forum at Cambridge University, the National Cyber Summit, the NIST FISSEA, CISSE, NIST NICE, and the IEEE and ACM conferences.

In addition to books, referred publications, conference speakers and numeral grant activities, Paul has four patents. Dr. Wang received his Ph.D. under Dr. Robert Ledley, the inventor of body CT scanner in 2004.
