Kogod Cybersecurity Governance Center (KCGC) 4400 Massachusetts Avenue NW Washington, DC 20016
The Kogod Cybersecurity Governance Center (KCGC) at American University aims to promote responsible cybersecurity governance by providing organizational leaders and their designees with thoughtful, practical and well-supported guidance on the cybersecurity issues that are essential to their core stakeholder responsibilities.
Today's leaders are in urgent need of shared intelligence, emerging best practices and managerial guidance to meet the challenges posed by cybersecurity while also maximizing its opportunities. The economic, organizational and technological dimensions of cybersecurity require a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to responsible governance.
The Kogod School of Business at American University's location in Washington, D.C. puts the Center in a unique position to access, integrate, synthesize and report on leading edge research and practice in both the private and public sector.
KCGC co-organized the "AU Cyber Connection" Faculty Workshop, a seminal one-day event in which faculty across campus shared their cybersecurity-related research and joined a discussion about even more dynamic and robust cross-campus, inter-disciplinary collaboration. The workshop was part of KCGC's ongoing efforts to actively partner with colleagues across AU's campus.
KCGC Faculty Research Fellow Casey Evans and her research partner Elizabeth Petrie, Director of Strategic Intelligence at Citi, published "An Intelligence-led Approach to Addressing Cyber Fraud: Proactive Fraud Auditing" in the inaugural issue of the Journal of Financial Compliance, a peer-reviewed journal.
