CTU Students Named Finalists in National Security Innovation Competition

CTU Students Named 2014 NCIS FinalistsCTU Doctoral students Michael Cohen and Philip Chan, along with their CTU faculty advisor Dr. Yanzhen Qu, participated in the 2014 National Security Innovation Competition (NSIC) where they were named finalists for their security solutions submission.

NSIC serves as a link between college students researching new ideas and technologies that meet national security needs with government and industry customers. Groups of students that participate in NSIC like CTU’s Michael Cohen and Philip Chan, conduct cutting-edge research in areas such as nuclear and biological pathogen detection, cyber security, infrastructure protection, renewable energy, and surveillance methods.

Michael and Philip’s research topic is titled “An Effective Method to Detect and Encapsulate Run Time Vulnerability on Cellular Networks.” The duo launched their research project with the goal of discovering and developing an effective method to detect and encapsulate cellular network run-time vulnerabilities due to the fact that cellular networks are currently the weakest link in the cyber security sector.
