Securboration Wins Air Force Contract for Sensitive Data Disclosure Risk Calculation System

Securboration has been awarded a contract by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to develop algorithms to automatically categorize and quantify the security risks from disclosure of information. It is important to accurately assess the risk associated with different types of information so that protection effort is focused on the most potentially damaging leaks. For some types of information, such as passwords or encryption keys, the consequences of leaking even a few bits of information can be very severe. Securboration will develop the RIsk QUantification and ESTimation (RIQUEST) system to extend the state-of-the art in automatic risk disclosure quantification by applying probabilistic inference to information automatically extracted from open sources.  This effort will focus on three areas that are essential for auto-risk disclosure: Text Analytics, Probabilistic Inference; and Causal Analysis. By making technological advancements in each, Securboration will create a unique and innovative system that performs auto-risk disclosure by ingesting data from multiple heterogeneous data streams, extracting information pertinent to the a piece of sensitive information from those streams, quantifying impacts that the discovered information have on the overall security posture of the sensitive information, and providing complete traceability and transparency into the disclosure risk causes for sensitive information.
