Defensive Mechanisms Virtual Institute

Defense mechanisms can be categorized into groups such as Authentication and Encryption, Malware and Intrusion Detection, and Software Vulnerability.


The research projects of the Defensive Mechanisms Virtual Institute advance resiliency by investigating the foundations needed to detect, respond and mitigate cyber attacks. This requires theory, models and tools at each stage of the cyber attack timeline. In addition, this field includes the necessary research to balance performance and security in responding to threats.
