UMBC and U.S. Naval Academy Partnership: Five collaborative cybersecurity projects funded by the Office of Naval Research
UMBC and U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) faculty researchers presented updates on five collaborative cybersecurity projects funded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR). Five projects led by COEIT faculty are supported by three-year grants from the ONR, most of which are entering their second year of funding. Pictured here, Karuna Joshi, assistant professor of information systems (IS) and Tim Finin, professor of CSEE are working with USNA faculty to develop a cloud storage system that will make it impossible for deleted data to be restored or recovered.
