INFORMS New York Metro Chapter Presents

Cryptography’s Surprising Modest Role

in Modern Enterprise Cyber Security



Dr. Edward Amoroso

Research Professor, NYU and CEO, TAG Cyber, LLC



This presentation references the rich history and contributions of cryptography to enterprise security but also warns that most experts tend to over-state cryptography's role in day-to-day protection of critical resources. The speaker bridges the common university equation of cryptography with the industry equation and recommends that cryptography experts (especially researchers) consider expanding their horizons and interests to meet this bridge, especially into promising areas of security research that were orphaned decades ago. The talk includes one such detailed research example.
