CTSC helps CC*DNI awardee tune its cybersecurity practices

CTSC helps CC*DNI awardee tune its cybersecurity practices

The University of New Hampshire Research Computing Center’s (UNH RCC’s) mission is to provide information technology (IT) support for the sponsored research community at UNH and collaborate with higher education, industry, and government to create innovative technologies designed to address important social, environmental, and economic needs. UNH RCC is supported in part by CC*DNI NSF CISE Grant #1541430. CTSC and UNH RCC are conducting an engagement looking at UNH RCC’s existing cybersecurity practices in relation to UNH and the scientists it serves. The engagement has the following related objectives:
  • Produce a report within the next month assessing the current state of UNH RCC’s information security program and make specific prioritized recommendations. 
  • Plan and conduct a period of collaborative work culminating in a 2-4 day CTSC site visit at UNH in early June.  During the site visit, meetings, training sessions, and other activities will leverage the report to build momentum for UNH to implement and sustain the plan's prioritized recommendations. 
This engagement is an opportunity for CTSC to work with a program at an institutional level and positively impact the security of the cyberinfrastructure and trustworthiness of the science it supports.
