The Directorate for Science and Technology (S&T) is the primary research and development arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. S&T uses the Homeland Security Advanced Research Project Agency to engage industry, academia, government, and other sectors in innovative research and development, rapid prototyping, and technology transfer to meet operational needs. Academic organizations such as the Computing Research Association and industry groups have called for increased funding for cybersecurity R&D. This keynote will describe what the S&T directorate is doing to drive, discover, and deliver new solutions to address cybervulnerabilities as well as what research areas it considers as priorities in the near term.
