Learn strategies to create
secure systems and embrace
new technological advances to counter the damaging attacks
facing organizations around
Your company’s security needs more than a patch job. Discover new solutions in to solve your organization’s security challenges. With the help of 14 world-renowned MIT Faculty Cybersecurity experts from the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), you will move your organization from a “patch and pray” defense to security “by default.”
“There are two kinds of companies today. Those that
have experienced a security breach and those
that don’t know it yet.”

PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING
WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS PROGRAM?
This course is suitable for anyone with a bachelor’s level education in computer science. Because the application of the course is broad, it can apply to both early career professionals as well as senior technical managers. To ensure participants understand how the concepts apply to business, at least three years of work experience is recommended. Teams of
individuals from the same organization are also encouraged to apply.
Participants may include:
“Many of us make security-related decisions all the time; it is likely that broadening our exposure to the latest thinking and techniques will cause us to make different choices, and that's a good thing.”
- Ron D., State Street Global Advisors, VP, Sr. Application Development Architect
“The course has provided useful information and has helped me bridge a lot of gaps I had concerning Cybersecurity. It has been useful overall increasing my level of confidence in related topics.”
- Konstantinos K., Resiliency Services Leader, Data Center Manager, IBM
“This course helped me to think about cyber security as a multi-faceted problem to be treated holistically. The video segments were all excellent as were the presenters.”
- Jason B., Consultant, FAS Global

Rus is professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Director of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT. Rus’ research interests include distributed robotics, mobile computing, and programmable matter. At CSAIL, she has led numerous groundbreaking research projects in the areas of transportation, security, environmental modeling and monitoring, underwater exploration, and agriculture. Her research group, the Distributed Robotics Lab, has developed modular and self-reconfiguring robots, systems of self-organizing robots, networks of robots and sensors for first responders, mobile sensor networks, techniques for cooperative underwater robotics, and new technology for desktop robotics. They have built robots that can tend a garden, bake cookies from scratch, cut birthday cake, fly in swarms without human aid to perform surveillance functions, and dance with humans.
Dr. Howard Shrobe is the Director of CyberSecurity@CSAIL, MIT's research initiative focused on cybersecurity technology based in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). He is also a Principal Research Scientist at CSAIL in the AI group. His research interests include software and hardware architectures for computer security and the use of AI techniques in software development and other engineering disciplines. Dr. Shrobe joined the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory as a Research Scientist in 1978 and was promoted to Principal Research Scientist in 1980. From 1982 - 1992 he served in a management capacity for Symbolics Incorporated, a spinoff from the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory that produced Lisp Machine computers and development environments. From 1994 - 1997, Dr. Shrobe served at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) where he was Chief Scientist of the Software and Intelligent Systems Technology Office from 1994 - 1995 and then Chief Scientist and Assistant Director of the Information Technology Office from 1995 - 1997. While at DARPA Dr. Shrobe initiated and led the Evolutionary Design of Complex Software program as well as the Information Survivability program. Dr. Shrobe then returned to MIT, serving as the Associate Director of the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory from September 1997 - Dec 2000. In 2010, Dr. Shrobe returned to DARPA in TCTO and then I2O offices. He was the program manager for the CRASH (Clean-Slate Design of Resilient, Adaptive, Secure Hosts) and MRC (Mission-oriented Resilient Clouds) programs. In 2013, Dr. Shrobe returned to CSAIL and served as Associate Director until 2014. He has been a Principal Investigator in several cybersecurity projects such as DARPA's Intrusion Tolerant Systems program, the OASIS program, the Self Regenerative Systems and IARPA's NICECAP program.
