Trusted CI at 2022 NSF Research Infrastructure Workshop in Boulder

Earlier this month, members of Trusted CI presented a workshop at the NSF 2022 Research Infrastructure Workshop in Boulder, Colorado. 

The Research Infrastructure Workshop was a four-day event on safety, cyberinfrastructure, cybersecurity, and science communication. The hybrid event included a poster session, social gatherings, site tours of NCAR’s Research Aviation Facility, GAGE, and NEON, and virtual ice breaker and speed dating sessions to facilitate networking opportunities for everyone. Several members of Trusted CI attended the multi-day event, making new connections with operational and senior leadership at major facilities, midscale facilities, and the NSF.

Our workshop on Friday targeted cyber security officers and focused on the JASON advisory report on Cybersecurity at NSF Major Facilities, cybersecurity guidelines in the Research Infrastructure Guide (RIG), a panel on building a cybersecurity program using the Trusted CI Framework, ransomware, and how the ResearchSOC supports NSF major facilities.

Representatives from the NSF, NRAO, OOI, GAGE, and the ResearchSOC presented and participated during the workshop. We thank Craig Risien (OOI), Wade Craig (NRAO), and Doug Ertz (GAGE) for participating in the Framework panel.

Trusted CI’s partner, CI Compass, led a cyberinfrastructure workshop earlier in the day that included panels on data management and workforce development.

We are grateful to the event organizers for giving us the opportunity to present, as well as meeting with our community members, both online and in-person.

Slides and videos from the event will be posted to the NSF Research Infrastructure Knowledge Sharing Gateway when they become available.
