IACD Press Releases


APL is teaming with the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center to operationalize the Integrated Adaptive Cyber Defense framework for cybersecurity automation, orchestration and information sharing.


The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab’s Integrated Adaptive Cyber Defense (IACD) project is maturing and moving into high gear as playbook automation begins to take hold across multiple government and industry sectors. Standards and tools are emerging that will become the bulwark for active cyber defenses for the next generation. Learn from the Technical Leader of JHU APL IACD project, Wende Peters, as she takes us through the journey that is IACD in this interview with ActiveCyber.

Wende Peters of JHU APL, the overall research manager of the effort, spent a couple of hours reviewing the project’s progress to date and provided some information on the roadmap for the effort.
