The research and education (R&E) community faces particular challenges regarding cybersecurity: diversity of size and autonomy, the use of diverse infrastructure (scientific instruments, sensor networks, sequencers, etc.), the highly collaborative and dynamic nature of scientific communities, and the specialized expertise needed to support cybersecurity in the research context. This webinar provides an overview of the ResearchSOC, which provides the R&E community with cybersecurity services, training, and information sharing needed to make scientific cyberinfrastructure resilient to cyberattacks and capable of supporting trustworthy, productive research.  

The ResearchSOC leverages existing cybersecurity services from Indiana University, Duke University, and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. It combines these operational services with the establishment of a community of practice for sharing best practices, lessons learned, and operational intelligence. The ResearchSOC couples these services with outreach and training, targeted at research projects and the higher education information security community, to educate them on information security for research.  

This webinar is ideal for technology managers supporting scientific research projects.

Speakers:

  • Von Welch: Director, Indiana University Center for Applied CybersSecurity Research and Director, Research Security Operations Center.
  • Richard Biever: Chief Information Security Officer, Duke University.
  • Michael Corn: Chief Information Security Officer at the University of California, San Diego.
  • Inna Kouper: Assistant Director, Data to Insight Center at Indiana University.
  • James Marsteller: Chief Information Security Officer of the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. Susan Sons: Chief Security Analyst at Indiana University Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research.

Presentations are recorded and include time for questions with the audience.
