USF students will study real hacking incidents


The Postgraduate Program of the University of South Florida, which focuses on internet safety, received a grant that allows Students to better understand the decisions taken by organizations facing cyber attacks.

The grant comes from the National Science Foundation. Earned $ 300.000 / € 265,600 and awarded to Dr. Grandon Gill, Professor at USF, Information Systems and Sciences Decisions.

The money is scheduled to be given over 18 months in real cyber case studies designed to combine the technical and social weaknesses that hackers exploit in the real world to infiltrate computer networks.

Individuals involved in these incidents will be interviewed by students and researchers in order to learn the reasons for taking certain decisions to deal with the attacks.

"Through the interviews, students will be able to learn when and why certain choices were made in each case," Professor Gill told WTSP 10 News.

By accessing information about real-world attacks, students are expected to increase their cyber defense skills and not just be prepared for an attack, but they can also predict the risks and create the strategies needed to minimize or eliminating them.

During the grant, the Florida Center for Safety at cyberspace (FC2), will bring the teacher in contact with individuals who have agreed to participate in the creation of the studies.

Also, students will learn about vulnerabilities in different types of Internet access points, regardless of the device they are connecting.
