During Trusted CI’s first 5 years, they’ve conducted more than 35 one-on-one engagements with NSF-funded projects, Large Facilities, and major science service providers representing the full range of NSF science missions. (See https://trustedci.org/engagedcommunities/.) They support a variety of engagement types including:
- Assistance in developing, improving, or evaluating an information security program.
- Software assurance-focused efforts.
- Identity management; technology or architectural evaluation.
- Training for staff.
- And more.
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.
