Securing Software Systems: Beyond Whack-A-Mole

Data Science Institute Colloquium | Faculty Spotlight: Suman Jana

Developing secure software is notoriously hard! Security vulnerabilities resulting from software bugs cost our economy billions of dollars every year. Unfortunately, the current “whack-a-mole” approach to fixing bugs as they show up often break more things than they fix. In this talk, I will describe some of the fundamental challenges in software security and summarize the progress made towards solving them in the last decade. I'll also provide a broad overview of several principled approaches that software developers can follow to improve the robustness of software systems against malicious attackers.

Suman Jana is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Columbia University. His primary research interests are in the areas of computer security and privacy. More specifically, he is interested in building automated tools for finding and fixing security and privacy vulnerabilities. He also occasionally delves into software engineering and operating systems.

Columbia Data Science Innovation Seminars

Ben Arancibia, Lead Data Scientist | Booz Allen Hamilton
Dan Liebermann, Lead Associate | Booz Allen Hamilton

Booz Allen Hamilton’s Dan Liebermann and Ben Arancibia will cover what it takes to get data science done in the real world. They will be sharing stories from the trenches – covering experiences and lessons learned from turning data science theory into reality when the problem (and the solution) are far from known. The talk will heavily engage the audience to hear their perspective, and cover the approach Booz Allen took to solve its clients’ problems. The goal is to get the audience thinking about what they would do in these situations and how they would apply their classroom experience.

In 2016, the Department of Health and Human Services announced the certification of the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). The DPP aims to reach 86 million pre-diabetic Medicare participants in the United States through education, training, and lifestyle coaching. According to the physician payment rule recently announced, Medicare will be reimbursing both digital and in-person versions of the DPP; however, it remained unclear how the parameters for the digital version will be set. Due to the relatively short history of digital DPP, little is known regarding the mechanism of weight loss when the services are rendered through a mobile app. This will be critical for CMS to set payment mechanism by outcomes as it announced. To better understand the mechanism of weight loss by digital DPP solutions, and to help CMS make the most informed decision on the payment rule, we have collaborated with one of the few certified digital DPP.
