IARPA plans ReSCIND Proposers Day
On December 23, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) announced its intention to hold a Proposers Day for the Reimagining Security with Cyberpsychology-Informed Network Defenses (ReSCIND) program. Registration is due by noon Pacific on February 13.
ReSCIND Proposers’ Day: Will be held Tuesday, February 28, 2023 from 8:00am to 3:30pm PST. Participants must register by Monday, February 13, 2023 at noon PST. Same day registrations will not be accepted. The link to register is: https://www.client-meeting.net/rescind-proposers-day
The IARPA ReSCIND program aims to improve cybersecurity by developing a new set of cyberpsychology-informed defenses that leverage attacker’s human limitations, such as innate decision-making biases and cognitive vulnerabilities.
ReSCIND seeks to develop novel methods to: 1) identify and model human limitations or cognitive biases relevant to cyber attack behavior, 2) understand, measure, and induce changes in cyber attack behavior and success, and 3) provide algorithms for automated adaptation of these solutions based on observed cyber attacker behavior. ReSCIND seeks to augment traditional cyber defenses to help rebalance the asymmetry of cyber defense by imposing a cyber penalty on attackers–causing wasted time and effort–thereby delaying and thwarting attacks.
