Title: Overview of Virginia Cyber Range & VT's IT Security Laboratory

In this talk I will give a brief overview of the Virginia Cyber Range, a new state-wide initiative to develop resources to enhance cybersecurity education across the Commonwealth of Virginia. I will then discuss ongoing research in Virginia Tech's IT Security Lab, a student cybersecurity laboratory located in the IT Security Office that is a collaboration between the Division of Information Technology and the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. With access to real-world operational security data, students in the lab are investigating research questions in areas such as moving target defense, security visualization, and security of the Internet of Things (IoT). I will describe opportunities associated with one such research effort that is leveraging the university's robust Log Archive and Analysis architecture to conduct security data analytics research.

David Raymond serves as Director of the Virginia Cyber Range and Deputy Director of Virginia Tech’s IT Security Office and Lab. He is also adjunct faculty in the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering where he teaches networking and cybersecurity courses. David came to
Virginia Tech from West Point where he was an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Director of Education Research at the Army Cyber Institute. David has published over 25 journal and conference papers in the areas of cyber operations, information assurance, secure wireless protocols, and online privacy, and he has spoken at numerous industry and academic conferences.
