Speaker Bio

Ruimin Sun joined Florida International University as an assistant professor in 2022. Prior to joining FIU, she worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the seclab of Northeastern University. She earned her Ph.D. from Florida Institute of Cybersecurity at the University of Florida. Ruimin’s research aims at securing ubiquitous systems and devices. Recent work has included the investigation of control logic modification attacks in programmable logic controllers, proprietary AI privacy protection on mobile devices, and memory management issues in embedded devices. Some of the other research interests include malware detection and mitigation, and software reliability improvement.


Nowadays, the security community is facing challenges from not only lone individuals, but also organizations with strategic agendas, which have caused enormous loss in social welfare, national security, and global economy. To overcome the challenges, this talk focus on securing ubiquitous systems and protect end users from cyber attacks through enhanced security mechanisms with intelligent defense strategies. We investigate the security and privacy issues in critical applications and services, through exploring control logic modification attacks and memory management issues existed in cyber physical systems, artificial intelligence privacy in mobile devices, and malware detection in general purpose computers.
