Jason Larsen is a sought after speaker in the cyber of critical infrastructure. He has spent most of the last ten years at the Idaho National Labs with a few side trips, including writing an IPS, a couple of years on the Win7 penetration testing team, and some radiation modeling. Jason specializes in the deeply technical aspects of cyber security and has been accused of trying to rewrite every known utility from scratch.
The seminar series is presented by the Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG) Project, an $18 million multi-university research effort whose partner institutions include the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Arizona State University, Dartmouth, and Washington State University. The TCIPG Project, a successor to the earlier NSF-funded TCIP Center, was founded in 2009 with support from the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. It is housed in the Information Trust Institute, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
