    In this fast-paced global economy, academia and industry must innovate to evolve and succeed. Today’s researchers and industry experts are seeking transformative technologies to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Cutting-edge technological advances in cybersecurity solutions aid in enabling the security of complex heterogeneous high-performance computing (HPC) environments. On the other hand, HPC facilitates powerful and intelligent innovative models for reducing time to response to identify and resolve a multitude of potential, newly emerging cyberattacks.

    Cybersecurity and High-Performance Computing Environments provides a collection of the current and emergent research innovations, practices, and applications focusing on the interdependence of cybersecurity and HPC domains for discovering and resolving new emerging cyber-threats.


    • Represents a substantial research contribution to the state-of-the-art solutions for addressing the threats to confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA triad) in HPC environments
    • Covers the groundbreaking and emergent solutions that utilize the power of the HPC environments to study and understand the emergent, multifaceted, anomalous, and malicious characteristics

    The content will help university students, researchers, and professionals understand how HPC research fits broader cybersecurity objectives and vice versa.

    Elizabeth Bautista is the manager for the Operations Technology Group (OTG) at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing (NERSC) Center (www.nersc.gov). The group of Site Reliability Engineers ensures 24x7 accessibility, reliability, and security of NERSC's High Performance Systems, data storage systems, and the facility environment. Bautista's Data Team manages a 125 TB Elastic/VictoriaMetrics based data warehouse infrastructure that collects at a rate of 25,000 - 400,000 data points/second depending on the source. The types of datasets range from the facility environment (power, temperature, humidity) to storage I/O to system logs of the HPC systems and support services. The analysis of the real-time data provides alerts to manage the facility, and the archived data is correlated to provide business decisions and future trends. Bautista supports programs that seek to involve minorities and women in STEM and advocates that the next generation of professionals has practical hands-on training as part of their education. In her career, she has served as a member of the Lab’s Computing Science Diversity Group, is a member of Women Scientists and Engineers, was a delegate in the Council of University of California Staff Assemblies (CUCSA), a staff advocate group, she champions issues of retention and diversity and is the founder of Filipinas in Computing, a community in the Grace Hopper Conference. Bautista was named one of the 100 most influential Filipina Women Globally in 2015. She has a B.S. in Computer Information Systems and an M.B.A. in Technical Management both from Golden Gate University.
