About this event

The Center for Trustworthy Scientific Cyberinfrastructure (CTSC) announces the Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (CCOE)Webinar Series to fulfill their mission of providing readily available cybersecurity services tailored to the NSF science community. 

The U.S. National Science Foundation Transition To Practice (TTP) program is critical to the successful deployment and realization of value for NSF-funded cybersecurity research. Transition to Practice has been named a priority by the National Science and Technology Council’s subcommittee on Network and Information Technology Research Development (NITRD), since 2011, as the participating agencies recognize the need to see funded research adopted by the operational community and ultimately make a positive impact on society. Currently, a chasm exists between the output of the academic cybersecurity research community, and the operational Information Technology (IT) community, which acquires system prototypes that often result from later stage academic research components and implements them in operational environments as either proofs of concept or in operations. The goal of the NSF TTP program is to enable NSF-funded cybersecurity research to cross this chasm and become an operationalized asset to add value in our nation’s cybersecurity efforts.
 
Internet2 Collaborative Innovation Community (CINC UP): Cybersecurity Research Transition to Practice Acceleration Opportunities (Emily Nichols)
Internet2 is leading an NSF funded EAGER project to benefit members as together we develop a comprehensive TTP program with the goal of enabling as many NSF cybersecurity grants as possible to transition to practice in an accelerated fashion.
 
Please join us to discuss how together the Internet2 community of NSF funded cybersecurity researchers, IT operations, and institutions including universities, labs, industry members and affiliates can work together to enable the application of cybersecurity research.
 
NSF's SATC TTP Ecosystem (Dr. Alec Yasinsac)
NSF is offering substantial resources to support TTP efforts, including TTP training for PIs, match-making services, mentoring services, a best-practices repository, and software development resources.
 
A key resource is the SaTC (Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace) TTP designation. PIs that have mature research results can apply for three year awards up to $500k or four year projects up to $1.2m exclusively to conduct TTP activities.
 
In this presentation, we will present the case for TTP, identify the unique aspects of the TTP Designation in the SaTC Solicitation, and will describe elements of the anticipated TTP ecosystem. This talk is relevant for academics of all rank, to research scientists in government and academic laboratories, and industry members that are interested in harvesting NSF-funded cybersecurity research.

The webinars are recorded and will be linked on YouTube and on this page for later viewing. Each webinar includes time for questions from attendees, so please join the live webinar if you are able. They use Adobe Connect to conduct the webinars (test your connection, Adobe add-in not required for participants). Participant lines are muted. They provide a chat box for participant questions.

Upcoming topics are communicated on their blog.  If you have questions or comments after the webinar, please join their discussion mailing list. To submit topics or request to present, contact them here.


  National Science Foundation CTSC CCoE


As the National Science Foundation Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, CTSC draws on expertise from multiple internationally recognized institutions, including Indiana University Pervasive Technology Institute, the University of Illinois, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. Drawing on this expertise, CTSC collaborates with NSF-funded research organizations to focus on addressing the unique cybersecurity challenges faced by such entities. In addition to our leadership team, a world-class CTSC Advisory Committee adds its experience and a critical eye to the center's strategic decision-making.
