CTSC at Gateways 2016

The Gateways 2016 conference (Nov 2-3, 2016) drew about 120 attendees to learn more about science gateways and the communities they serve. As the lead for CTSC’s collaboration with the Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI), Randy Heiland (CTSC) led a tutorial on Secure Software Engineering Best Practices and presented an overview of CTSC and its partnership with SGCI.
Science gateways help expand and broaden participation in science - research and education, by providing user-friendly interfaces to computing, data, networking and scientific instrumentation. The goal of the SGCI is to speed the development and application of robust, cost-effective, sustainable gateways and address the needs of scientists and engineers. Within the five-component design of SGCI, CTSC will formally be part of the Incubator component and will focus on security education for gateway software developers and operators.
