Developing a Cybersecurity Plan for NSF Science and Engineering Projects: First Unit Released

A number of NSF projects have a requirement to develop a cybersecurity plan as part of their cooperative agreement with NSF [1]. Other want to do so because they consider it a best practice worth following.

As apart of CTSC's ongoing engagement with the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) we are developing a guide for creating such a cybersecurity program. Our first unit in this guide is now available for comment. We are using the TrustedCI Forum to disseminate this unit and solicit feedback from the community. We encourage all members of the community to join the conversation and provide their insights into this important work.
