MSSI student Taylor Bradley recognized by National Center for Women & Information Technology
Taylor Bradley, a student in the Information Security Institute’s Master of Science in Security Informatics program, is an honorable mention recipient of the National Center for Women & Information Technology’s 2023 Aspirations in Computing Collegiate Award.
The award recognizes undergraduate and graduate women, genderqueer, and non-binary students for their accomplishments in computing, including projects that demonstrate a high level of innovation and potential impact.
“Being recognized by NCWIT is such an honor. As a woman in tech and a woman in the Army, seeing an organization that works hard to advance innovation by correcting underrepresentation in computing is empowering,” says Bradley. “Having the opportunity to share my research with this community is a privilege and I hope it can help to inspire future women in tech.”
Bradley was honored for her project “Novelty Detection in Network Traffic: Using Survival Analysis for Feature Identification.” Supported in part by the National Security Agency Laboratory for Advanced Cybersecurity Research and the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Army Research Laboratory, the project provides an unconventional approach to identifying network traffic features that influence novelty detection based on survival analysis techniques.
