Security risk management for information technology-based organizations has become increasingly important in recent years. However, the risk assessment and mitigation strategies that these organizations employ have remained relatively ad hoc and qualitative. In this paper, we extend a quantitative framework for risk assessment called Risk-Rank [1] to(More)
Enhancing underwater instruments with networking capabilities is opening up exciting new opportunities for remote ocean exploration. Underwater communication is essential in enabling networking, and in this work, we focus specifically on those applications that require a communication range of 5 to 10 meters. We will show that optical wireless technology is(More)
The structure of the contact network through which a disease spreads may influence the optimal use of resources for epidemic control. In this work, we explore how to minimize the spread of infection via quarantining with limited resources. In particular, we examine which links should be removed from the contact network, given a constraint on the number of(More)
Security risk management is becoming increasingly important in a variety of areas related to information technology (IT), such as telecommunications, cloud computing, banking information systems, etc. In this paper, we develop a systematic quantitative framework for security risk management in IT-intensive organizations. This framework provides a unified(More)
Inexpensive wireless communication and emerging energy storage technologies are creating a new future for the power grid. These tools are enabling a “smart grid” which can utilize novel control strategies, such as real-time pricing, to achieve efficiency, fairness, and stability. We propose a decentralized smart grid architecture which uses minimal(More)
