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!

Trusted CI Hosting COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall on March 24, 2020

Trusted CI is holding a Virtual Town Hall on Tuesday, March 24th at 3 pm Eastern to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the NSF open science community. Trusted CI recently posted a blog discussing recommendations for reducing cybersecurity risk while working remotely and protecting regulated data during the COVID-19 outbreak. Trusted CI, NSF CI CoE Pilot, and SGCI, we are also offering priority help to projects tackling COVID-19. The purpose of this Town Hall is to review Trusted CI resources and recommendations, share what institutions are currently doing, and discuss your concerns. This Town Hall will be recorded.

If you'd like to submit a question or topic for discussion, email Jeannette Dopheide. Join the town hall on March 24th at 3 pm Eastern.
