    Biography: Dr. Arun Viswanathan is a senior cybersecurity researcher and leads the Cyber DefenseEngineering and Research group at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. His work at JPL is primarilyconcerned with making mission-critical capabilities cyber resilient, with an emphasis on buildingcybersecurity solutions that can be deployed in operational environments such as spacecraft,spacecraft ground data systems, and autonomous systems. He has led teams on severalcybersecurity projects within JPL, with the DoE, NSA, and various industry partners, and haspublished in premier cybersecurity venues on topics of cyber situational awareness, model-basedcyber risk assessment, AI techniques for cybersecurity, and security of autonomous andintelligent systems. He is a senior member of the American Institute of Aeronautics andAstronautics (AIAA), and chair of the Aerospace Cybersecurity Working Group (ACWG). Healso participates in the development of an international IEEE standard on space systemscybersecurity as chair of the ground systems subgroup. Prior to JPL, Arun received his M.S. andPh.D. in Computer Science from the University of Southern California, where he exploredmodel-driven approaches for cyber situational awareness and explored the impact of cyberattackson the Smart Grid.
