Cukier Featured in Huffington Post Article on Cybersecurity

Prof. Michel Cukier of the A. James Clark School of Engineering and Maryland Cybersecurity Center was featured in a recent Huffington Post article on the subject of cybersecurity. The article, titled "Feds Turn To Hackers To Defend Nation In Cyberspace," included the following passage about cybersecurity education, which included a quote from Prof. Cukier:

At the University of Maryland, students interested in cybersecurity take a holistic approach, studying not only computer engineering, but also psychology, criminology and public policy.

This allows them to understand both the technical elements of cybersecurity and the personal motivations of hackers, said professor Michel Cukier, associate professor of reliability engineering at the university.

"Cybersecurity has been seen as a purely technical problem for a long time," Cukier said. "But if you're looking for people to come up with security solutions that address the human component as well, these students have a good chance of helping."

The article can be read in its entirety at the Huffington Post online.
