Strategies for Research Cybersecurity and Compliance from the Lab
Time 03/08/19 08:45AM-10:00AM
Room Capitol (M4)
Research, one of three key missions undertaken by the higher education community, is increasingly under scrutiny through the lenses of cybersecurity and compliance, making it an increasing challenging mission to accomplish. This talk is targeted at CISOs, CIO, VPRs and similar leaders who tackle the challenge of research cybersecurity and compliance. It relates experiences and strategies learned from five years of securing NSF-funded open science and regulated data compliance. Resources from NSF, Educause/HEISC and others will be covered.
With over 4000 NSF grants* provided to the top 25 recipients of NSF funding, research universities are struggling to ensure that this multitude of projects secure the intellectual property generated by these grants and that contractual compliance obligations are met. While major research facilities (such as NCSA, SDSC, or UCAR) have their own information security staffs, most awardees are reliant on project team members (often graduate students) or enterprise security offices for support.
