Exploiting multi-modal and multi-layered information in a mission-critical network, Cross-functional Information System for Decision Making (CISDeM) enables agile and proactive defence of the network. CISDeM consists of six research tracks spanning the areas of natural language processing, semantic analysis of unstructured data, network intrusion detection, traceback of attack traffic, and IP geo-location. Its innovations will help prepare for cyber attacks, identify intrusions and mitigate their impact, track down culprits, preserve evidence, and enable forensics to strengthen the system. In our increasingly technological and connected world, CISDeM will be imperative to the security of online banking, e-commerce, public services, and other mission-critical infrastructures.
