Gateways help solve the mysteries of the universe. For example, Galaxy Zoo enlisted non-scientists to help categorize astronomical images, whereas LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) captures signals from distant universes. (Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech)

Boost your cybersecurity with help from Trusted CI, the NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence

Trusted CI, the NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, offers a variety of information and services that are relevant to science gateways.

  • Training materials easily accessible online:
    • For gateway development, materials associated with software assurance (writing secure code) and identity management
    • For gateway operation, materials associated with log analysis, incident response, and situational awareness 
  • One-on-one engagements with NSF-funded projects that vary in scope (see the application details, including important dates). Engagements may range from a very brief (couple of weeks) cybersecurity “checkup” to a more in-depth, six-month engagement.
  • Trusted CI also contributes to SGCI's biannual Science Gateways Bootcamp, run by the Incubator, that provides a week-long workshop for gateway PIs and developers.

Finally, we encourage those in the science gateways community to reach out to us and join our mailing lists. We are here to help!

Call for Applications for Trusted CI's Open Science Cybersecurity Fellows Program — Apply by Jan. 17, 2020

Trusted CI serves the scientific community as the NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, providing leadership in and assistance in cybersecurity in the support of research. In 2019, Trusted CI established the Open Science Cybersecurity Fellows program. This program establishes and supports a network of Fellows with diversity in both geography and scientific discipline. These fellows have access to training and other resources to foster their professional development in cybersecurity. In exchange, they champion cybersecurity for science in their scientific and geographic communities and communicate challenges and successful practices to Trusted CI.

There will be a webinar about the Open Science Cybersecurity Fellows program on Tuesday, December 17, 2019, at 10am ET. You can register for the webinar here.
