Open Science Cyber Risk Profile publications

The Open Science Cyber Risk Profile (OSCRP) is a living document, developed under leadership from CTSC and ESnet, designed to help principal investigators and their supporting information technology professionals assess cybersecurity risks related to open science projects. We’re happy to share an update on its usage and appearances.
Richard LeDuc, Director of Computational Proteomics at the Proteomics Center of Excellence, Northwestern University, presented a poster “Protecting Proteomic Data Processing on the TDPortal with the Open Science Cyber Risk Profile” at the 65th ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics.  The TDPortal is the front end to research system of the National Resource for Translational and Developmental Proteogenomics (NRTDP) running on high performance computing at Northwestern University. The poster describes the NRTDP’s use of the OSCRP to manage risks for the TDPortal.

Two recent articles also covered OSCRP: the University of California IT Blog published “Helping Scientists Understand Research Cyber Risks,” and it was the subject of an article in IEEE Security and Privacy Magazine.

CCoE Webinar Oct. 23rd 11am ET: Incident Response in an Open and Decentralized Network

Berkeley Labs' Aashish Sharma is presenting the talk " Incident Response in an Open and Decentralized Network" on October 23rd at 11am (Eastern).

Please register here. Be sure to check spam/junk folder for registration confirmation with attached calendar file.

This talk presents various aspects and challenges of monitoring and security of a big research network while keeping it open and usable. We focus on issues faced due to following attributes: 
  1. decentralization
  2. high Speed
  3. BYOD policy
  4. openness
We further provide insights into our detection and incident response process using some real world examples and how above attributes influence this process.
