In CCoE, we're looking at market and technology trends (e.g., cloud, edge computing and the proliferation of AI) and investigate the security exposures they create - and how those exposures can be mitigated. We intensely target hard security problems that are at the forefront of the industry.
The outcomes of our work are high-quality software prototypes, architectures, patents, position papers, and assessments that directly influence IBM's security product portfolio. The contributions of the CCoE to the science and practice of information security are recognized globally by the security community.
Our technical focus areas include: security analytics, cloud and network security, digital trust and extended threat detection and response.
Winning the War against COVID-19
To meet the global challenge of COVID-19, IBM is providing support to clients, government agencies and partners, to help manage the COVID-19 health crisis while taking measures to quickly identify and mitigate risk, predict areas of resurgence and balance privacy and security concerns . As a part of this effort, CCoE researchers are playing a key role in developing a contact tracing application that leverages location data to help monitor the spread of the coronavirus.
