|With over 15 years of academic research and teaching, private industry, and government experience, Dr. Ketchiozo Thierry Wandji is an expert in cybersecurity risk management. Currently the Software Security Technical Lead in the Systems Security Division of the US Navy’s Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAVAIR) and the Cybersecurity Technical Expert in the Cyber Warfare Detachment, Dr. Wandji’s duties at NAVAIR include assessing software security throughout the software development lifecycle; planning, developing, and coordinating high-impact research projects on cyber defensive technologies; overseeing the development of innovative cyber technologies; providing policy guidance and standards as well as workforce development for software security; and integrating these standards into the acquisition process to ensure that systems are both reliable and highly-resilient to cyberattacks. Likewise, Dr. Wandji advances education in the field as an Associate Director for the Cybersecurity Assurance and Policy (CAP) Center and an Associate Professor in the University of Maryland System where he teaches cybersecurity, oversees cybersecurity research studies, and designs cybersecurity curriculum. He has played an integral role in the design and implementation of cybersecurity virtual labs (cyber range) for students to have a hands-on cybersecurity experience. Hailing originally from Cameroun, Dr. Wandji pursued his BS in Electrical Engineering from the Polytechnic School of Engineering at Montreal, Canada in 2003 and went on to obtain an MS in Electrical Engineering from Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD in 2007. During his graduate studies, Dr. Wandji worked as a research assistant on a NASA-funded project aimed at designing and implementing software components to analyze the operations of weather radar and GPS. Following his graduation, Dr. Wandji supported Rockwell Collins as a Radar System Engineer before joining NAVAIR as an Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Engineer and then as EMI Lead Systems Engineer. During this period, he noted that most systems were software intensive and that most electromagnetic issues were fixed by software updates, thus prompting him to delve into research on Software Reliability Modeling. Dr. Wandji earned his PhD in Systems Engineering at George Washington University (2015) with a dissertation on the Assessment of Software reliability using Classical and Bayesian methodologies to estimate Software Reliability Growth Model Parameters. Upon graduation he was promoted to Software Reliability Technical Lead and responsible for assessing the software maturity/reliability for all the software intensive systems developed by NAVAIR. Throughout his research studies in Software Reliability, Dr Wandji realized that software security was not being addressed throughout system security analysis nor cybersecurity risk assessment, which prompted him to further his technical knowledge through an MS in Cybersecurity Technology in 2017 from the University of Maryland University College. The same year, he also earned a graduate certificate in Cybersecurity with a focus on Embedded Systems from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Most recently, Dr. Wandji has completed a three-stage NAVAIR cybersecurity workforce development program, which concluded with a highly-selective and competitive technical rotation at the Naval Research Lab. This six-month technical rotation has provided him with hands-on experience in software security and cybersecurity. In addition to teaching in this area of expertise, Dr. Wandji has created a software reliability community of practice within the US Navy to leverage the best practices and share work experience and challenges. Dr. Wandji has led and coordinated a research and development team composed of researchers from NASA JPL, MITRE, and academia to work on high-impact research projects, which has resulted in a number of published articles and journal papers on software reliability, tutorials at the US Department of Defense, and presentations at private industry conferences. He is a member of the NSBE, IEEE, INCOSE, and EMC society.|
