Managing Risk in Cloud Platforms

Cloud computing has become the foundation of our information-based economy, providing the computing power necessary for advances in all sectors. However, cloud platforms expose users to a number of hidden risks. This project develops techniques for efficiently managing risk in cloud platforms by adapting and extending concepts from economics. A key goal of the project is to elevate risk management to a first-class systems design principle. The project is funded by the National Science Foundation under grant CNS-1802523, Google Faculty Research Award, and Amazon in the form of cloud credits.
