Impact Stories: From concept to company: How an idea incubated at ICSI became one of today’s leading network security monitoring platforms

With the rise of the Internet in the mid-1990s came the scourge of Internet attacks. At the time, Vern Paxson was pursuing a work-study Ph.D. at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), with a focus on Internet measurement. The LBNL security staff would occasionally ask him whether his research data happened to have information about a particular attack. It often did, but extracting the activity was a cumbersome process that only provided insight after-the-fact. This led him to develop a system – now named Zeek – to more effectively answer such questions.

ICSI Director Dr. Lea Shanley in "Expanding Ocean Understanding" Panel at CHOW

Dr. Lea Shanley, Director and President of ICSI, spoke in a panel discussion titled "Expanding Ocean Understanding" on June 8, 2022 at the Capitol Hill Ocean Week (CHOW). "Most of the community-based citizen science projects are focused on the terrestrial, and the marine domain is lagging behind,” said Dr. Shanley during the discussion. The panel focused on how "Indigenous knowledge and wisdom, community science and technology can expand our understanding of the ocean in the face of climate change." According to the NOAA National Marine Sanctuary, "roughly 80 percent of the ocean is unmapped, unobserved, and unexplored. Only an estimated 10–25 percent of marine species have been described globally."
