In cyber-physical systems security, a threat is a possible danger that might exploit a vulnerability to breach security and therefore cause possible harm. A threat can be either “intentional” (i.e. hacking: an individual cracker or a criminal organization) or “accidental” (e.g. the possibility of a computer malfunctioning, or the possibility of a natural disaster such as an earthquake, a fire, or a tornado) or otherwise a circumstance, capability, action, or event.  In our group we work with the Office of Naval Research to develop a capable and trained workforce with the skills to defend against emergent cyber and electronic warfare threats by advancing technological knowledge in cybersecurity in the context of cyber-physical systems.
