Seminar: The Center for Trustworthy Scientific Cyberinfrastructure: Five Years Later

with No Comments

In March of 2013 I visited ISI and presented on what was then the fledging Center for Trustworthy Scientific Cyberinfrastructure (CTSC), an effort to provide the NSF community with cybersecurity expertise and leadership. It's been nearly five years since and this talk will review that talk and examine the evolution, accomplishments, and lessons learned from CTSC.
