ASU spinout provides recon for the cybersecurity battlefield
One of the biggest cybersecurity challenges is blocking the efforts of potential hackers before they can trigger their malicious malware programs. CYR3CON, a venture that emerged from research led by Fulton Schools Assistant Professor Paulo Shakarian, recently filed its first patent for software designed to predict where hackers are likely to strike. Shakarian, CYR3CON’s CEO and co-founder, developed the framework of his new cybersecurity system as an analyst in the Army focusing on predicting the actions of terrorists and insurgents on the battlefield. The system is still being refined in Shakarian’s Cyber-Socio Intelligent Systems Laboratory at ASU. The goal is to make the system the standard of quality in predictive cybersecurity.
