Tufts senior publishes paper
Alexandra Tsitsiringos, A21, wrote a paper entitled “Improving the Cybersecurity of the US Nuclear Command, Control, Communications, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance,” which was recently published in Sigma Iota Rho’s Journal of International Relations. Her research question is: What steps might the United States undertake to reduce the vulnerability of its nuclear command, control, communications, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C3ISR) to cyberattacks?
Tsitsiringos writes that “attacks on the C3ISR can have devastating effects; information can be lost or miscommunicated, accidental launches can take place, development plans can allow other state or non-state actors to proliferate or advance their nuclear programs.” Read her paper here.
Tsitsiringos is a double major in Computer Science and International Relations. She is also President of Tufts Women in Computer Science (WiCS).
