How do you secure a data center, that's installed on a warship...while fighting at sea in a combat zone? How do you defend against motivated adversaries with enormous budgets? This talk will focus on cybersecurity in the environment that the US Navy faces. We will spend some time discussing the engineering process and factors that make the Navy's environment especially challenging. We will discuss exciting work that we are performing with academia to better secure our systems.
