College of Engineering Dean Pradeep Khosla was a guest on CNN Headline News with Renay San Miguel on December 15 via satellite from the Pittsburgh Video Tech Center. Khosla, the Philip and Marsha Dowd Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and co-director and co-founder of Carnegie Mellon CyLab, discussed cybersecurity, the Carnegie Mellon CyLab and the challenges facing America's cyber infrastructure.
Carnegie Mellon CyLab is a bold and visionary effort aimed at creating a public-private partnership to develop new technologies for measurable, available, secure, trustworthy and sustainable computing and communications systems, and to educate individuals at all levels. A university-wide, multidisciplinary initiative, the CyLab involves more than 200 faculty, students and staff and builds on more than two decades of leadership in information technology.
San Miguel received a Cybersecurity Journalism Award of Merit from Carnegie Mellon CyLab in 2003 in the online news category for his reporting on cnn.com. The Cybersecurity Journalism Awards were developed by Carnegie Mellon CyLab and the Information Networking Institute, along with the Washington, D.C.-based Newseum-the only interactive museum of news. The awards honor editors, reporters and producers who have done the most to educate the public about America's ongoing battle to protect cyberspace and preserve our national security.
