Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Trusted CI, and CACR Launch Engagement

We are pleased to announce the start of an engagement with Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego. Scripps Oceanography is supported by multiple NSF awards, including # 1327683, 1212770, and 1556466, as well as research awards from the Department of Defense and National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (among others).

This engagement is in collaboration with the DOD-funded Principles-Based Assessment for Cybersecurity Toolkit (PACT) project. PACT is a methodology and tool set based on the Information Security Practice Principles and developed in collaboration by Trusted CI, the IU Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research, and Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane. Lessons learned from applying the methodology to Scripps Oceanography will be used to refine PACT.  Scripps Oceanography’s interest in engaging with Trusted CI and the PACT project presented a perfect opportunity to leverage Trusted CI’s expertise and knowledge of complex open science environments, while advancing a methodology with potential for very broad application.
