- Assistance in developing, improving, or evaluating an information security program.
- Software assurance-focused efforts.
- Identity management; technology or architectural evaluation.
- Training for staff.

As the NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, Trusted CI’s mission is to provide the NSF community a coherent understanding of cybersecurity’s role in producing trustworthy science and the information and know-how required to achieve and maintain effective cybersecurity programs.
