Information Systems Faculty Member Receives $1 Million in Grant Funding

isIs someone from your organization stealing trade secrets and selling them to your competitors? Does your organization struggle with detecting and stopping Internet attacks? Researchers at the UTSA College of Business have received two grants totaling $1 million to help companies better detect insider threats and enhance computer security.

 

UTSA researchers were awarded $797,000 in funding from the Naval Postgraduate School, the U.S. Navy’s national security research university, as part of a three-year $1.4 million contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate Cyber Security Division.

 

“We are pioneering a new approach in insider threat detection using digital forensics and data mining,” said Nicole Beebe, Ph.D. ’07, assistant professor of digital forensics and principal investigator of the project. “Previous approaches relied primarily on behavioral analysis from past breaches.”

 

UTSA researchers will be responsible for developing an algorithm that detects hostile insiders using digital forensics—the science of discovering, recovering and investigating digital information. The algorithm will help companies detect data exfiltration, employee misconduct and other unauthorized activity that jeopardizes the
organization. Daijin Ko, professor of statistics in the college, is a co-researcher in this project.

 

The result will be a computer program that will scan an organization’s computer systems, analyze the data and present a report on system usage anomalies. “The benefit of our system is that it is economical to employ and uses only a small amount of memory, processing power and disk space,” said Beebe.

 

A second grant of $205,000 from the Naval Postgraduate School will help identify the best means to classify file and data types. Beebe and Minghe Sun, professor of management science, will evaluate three methods of data type classification and determine the most effective, which will ultimately be shared with the public through open source software.

 

“Our data type classification research will improve computer security while also developing new and enhanced technologies for detecting, preventing and responding to cyber attacks,” said Beebe, who previously worked in federal law enforcement as a digital forensics investigator.

 

This work will aid forensic triage—the first steps taken by an investigator to assess the situation and focus the investigation—by helping investigators target or prioritize search, extraction and analysis of file and data types of greatest interest to their case.

 

This improved efficiency will allow companies to save time spent on analyzing data and eliminate irrelevant cases earlier on in the investigation process.

College Symposium Highlights Real World Applications of Research

symposiumThe UTSA College of Business bridged the gap between research and practice during an inaugural research symposium hosted last fall for the business community.

 

Showcasing the scholarly work of business faculty, presentations covered topics spanning the areas of branding, CEO compensation, computer security, green real estate and managing employees.

 

Faculty participants were Nicole Beebe, cyber security; Karan Bhanot, finance; Jeff Boone, accounting; Tony Ciochetti, real estate finance and development; Cheryl Linthicum, accounting; Michael McDonald, management; Tom Thomson, real estate finance and development; and John Wald, finance.

Do Stock Markets Catch the Flu?

Chances are you or someone you know will suffer from the flu this winter. But your health may not be the only thing that suffers during a flu epidemic. In fact, stock market trading activity decreases when flu incidence is high, according to a study by John Wald, professor of finance.

 

stock-market-fluThe study, “Do Stock Markets Catch the Flu?” is forthcoming in the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis. Wald and his co-authors examined the impact of influenza on stock markets, studying the New York Stock Exchange for trading activity and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Google Flu Trends to measure flu activity in and outside the United States over 13 years.

 

The results noted that in the United States, a higher incidence of flu is associated with decreased trading, decreased volatility, decreased returns and higher bid-ask spreads. Consistent with the flu affecting institutional investors and market makers, the decrease in trading activity and volatility is primarily driven by the incidence of influenza in the New York City area. However, the effect of the flu on bid-ask spreads and returns is related to the incidence of flu nationally. International data confirm their findings of a decrease in trading activity and returns when flu incidence is high.

 

So, should investors be wary of flu season? According to Wald, “The importance of local flu effects on financial markets suggests that it may be important for companies to urge their key employees to get a flu shot.”

Technological Sophistication Sways Consumers

technology-presentationA technologically sophisticated presentation of performance data can have an impact on how positively that information is evaluated, particularly by novices in the audience. This is according to research recently published in Psychology of Popular Media Culture by Jill Sundie, assistant professor of marketing.

 

Sundie contributed to the research in collaboration with lead author Rosanna Guadagno from the National Science Foundation and colleagues from University of Alabama and Arizona State University. The article is titled, “The Persuasive Power of Computer-based Multi Media Presentations.”

 

Participants were asked to review a presentation of a football scout’s favorable report on a potential recruit and evaluate the recruit’s projected success. The subjects chosen were evenly divided between football experts and novices. Each group was given the presentation in either a typed format, as printed PowerPoint charts or as a computer-based animated PowerPoint presentation.

 

“Can sophisticated presentation software such as PowerPoint or Prezi make the same performance data look significantly better to an audience, compared to when they see it on a hard copy printed report?” said Sundie, who teaches consumer behavior. “We also wanted to know whether any technology ‘bump’ in evaluations would be the same for audience members who were experts versus novices in the topic.”

 

Among all study participants, the greater the technological sophistication of the presentation, the more highly they rated the projected success of the football recruit. However, this effect was primarily driven by the higher ratings given by the football novices.

 

What implication does this have for businesses? “High-tech presentations may not be as effective persuasively to experts in your peer group, but if you are trying to convince a novice in the field to take up your cause, it can’t hurt to go high tech,” she said.
