MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (May 20, 2021)​ — CloudCover®, an automated, intelligence-driven cybersecurity platform, was one of the industry experts invited to participate last month at Stanford School of Engineering’s Global Project Center’s (GPC) Disruptive Technology and Digital Cities Program’s inaugural global cybersecurity event, “Threats to the Network Edge/IoT.”

CloudCover’s founder and chief executive officer, Stephen Cardot, and chief technology officer and executive vice president of technology, Robert Demopoulos, both shared their expertise as part of the event, which also included Robert Rodriguez, Chairman and founder of SINET; Jeremiah Baker, professional ethical hacker; Lieutenant General Michael G. Dana (retired); and Jimmie Lee, Facebook’s head of security applications.

The event was an opportunity to share perspectives on the explosion of innovation and product development, the challenges and threats on the horizon to the network edge/IoT, and how cybersecurity needs will only increase as the landscape becomes more complex.

Participation in the event is part of CloudCover’s continued membership of the School of Engineering’s Disruptive Technology and Digital Cities Program. The program brings faculty, staff, and students from multiple departments and schools across Stanford University together with leaders from some of the world’s most progressive companies and organizations with the goal of understanding how global smart cities are being developed today and how they’ll be shaped by emerging technologies in the future.

CloudCover has been a corporate affiliate member of the program since 2019. In addition to regularly engaging with Stanford faculty and staff to discuss program updates and share industry insights, the company also supports the program’s technology research efforts, including studies on embedded sensor security, advanced data analytics, and cybersecurity mobility. For this research, the company has shared information with Stanford’s GPC concerning its CyberSafety PlatformTM – real-time risk-response security that functions at microsecond speed, proactively inspecting, analyzing, anticipating, and reacting to cyber threats with 99.9999999% accuracy.

The membership in Stanford School of Engineering’s Disruptive Technology and Digital Cities Program continues to be an important building block of CloudCover’s larger innovation and technology strategy. “The ethos and approach of the program mirrors what we believe to be true at CloudCover – that combining business modeling expertise and technology research is the future of our industry,” says CloudCover founder and CEO, Stephen Cardot. “The program has been incredibly beneficial when it comes to connecting with early-stage technologies and finding new ways to transform disruption into competitive advantage through targeted research and sharing industry expertise.”
