Carnegie Mellon CyLab To Release New Security Report
At Bloomberg Boards & Risk Briefing in Washington, D.C.

PITTSBURGH—Carnegie Mellon University's CyLab will release a new report that shows boards and senior executives need to be more involved in the privacy and security of their computer systems and data. The findings from the 2010 governance survey report, which measures how boards and executives are governing the privacy and security of their networks and data, will be presented at the Bloomberg Boards & Risk Briefing on Tuesday, June 15 at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. Carnegie Mellon CyLab is co-hosting the event in conjunction with Bloomberg to explore governance issues facing boards, ranging from executive compensation to cyber risk.

Presenting the survey findings will be Carnegie Mellon's Pradeep K. Khosla, dean of the College of Engineering and CyLab founding director; Virgil Gligor, CyLab co-director and a professor of electrical and computer engineering; and Jody Westby, a CyLab distinguished fellow and chief executive officer of Global Cyber Risk LLC.

"The survey results indicate that boards and senior executives need to be more actively involved in the governance of the privacy and security of their computer systems and data, but this year's study shows some important areas of improvement," said Westby, the study's author.

CyLab is the largest university-based research and education center in the world for computer and network security, information security and software assurance. CyLab is located in the university's College of Engineering and with campuses in Silicon Valley and Pittsburgh. Carnegie Mellon CyLab establishes public-private partnerships for the research and development of technologies for sustainable, resilient and trustworthy computing and communications systems.
