On Wednesday, June 10, Dr. Anita D’Amico, Director of the Applied Visions’ Secure Decisions Division, provided expert testimony before the House Committee on Science and Technology, Subcommittee on Research and Science Education at a hearing entitled “Cyber Security R&D” which addressed issues of education, public-private partnerships, and research and development for cyber security to help combat the increased risks of cyber threats.

Dr. D’Amico discussed the need for a multi-disciplinary approach to technology and security, involving the social sciences to improve the usability and security of technology by understanding how it is actually used by people. Continuing her focusing on the people and process side of Information Security, she spoke of the need for mentorship in training the next generation of cyber warriors. She also addressed questions from the Subcommittee regarding cyber security research and the state of security education at the university level and for the general public.

“We need to change the culture: to make good security second-nature to all of us, not something that we try to avoid,” said Dr. D’Amico. “This change in culture is not going to be achieved by a bunch of smart engineers designing better intrusion detection systems. This cultural shift requires the expertise of those who understand how to change minds – that is, the social sciences.”

Dr. D’Amico is a human factors psychologist and an information security specialist, with interests in improving situational awareness of information security analysts through visualization and cognitive analysis. She leads AVI’s Secure Decisions Division to conduct government-funded research in these areas, and to develop tools, techniques, and products based on that research. Her most recent work has been in the area of combining geographic information with network security and network management information to improve security and preserve continuity of operations.
