2019 NSF Cybersecurity Summit wrap-up: Strength in Numbers

The 2019 NSF Cybersecurity Summit for Large Facilities and Cyberinfrastructure was a resounding success. Presentations have been posted to our website, more will be added as they become available.

Our attendance this year was 143, up from 117 attending last year. Presentation proposals saw an increase as well this year, which allowed us to offer a greater variety of trainings and topics. And, our student program had a significant increase in applications; prompting us to include 10 students, up from 6 students last year. In 2019 we launched our new Fellows program and the Cybersecurity Technology Transition to Practice (TTP) program, both of which were included in the Summit agenda of presentations.

Each year we write a report of the Summit, the highlights, and its findings. We are in the process of drafting the 2019 report and will post it soon.

We thank all the presenters, trainers, attendees, students, Fellows, and the event coordinators who helped make this our most successful Summit to date. And finally, we thank the NSF for their support of Trusted CI and our mission to lead in the development of a cybersecurity ecosystem.
