NSF, DOE Form Cyber Threat Profiling Working Group

cybersecurityThe Energy Department‘s Energy Sciences Network and the National Science Foundation‘s Cybersecurity Center of Excellence have organized a working group tasked to develop a threat profile for open science organizations.

ESnet said Wednesday the working group comprises scientists and security professionals from HUBzero, iRods, the San Diego Supercomputer Center, California Institute of Technology, Harvard University, Northwestern University, University of Southern California’s Information Sciences Institute and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

“The goal of this effort is to provide tailored guidance to the science community on the threats to science assets and the consequences of those threats to the science mission,” said Sean Peisert, a staff scientist at DOE’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

“This information will provide a basic knowledge framework to expedite managing those threats for the wide portfolio of open science projects,” Peisert added.

ESnet, funded by DOE’s Office of Science and managed by LBNL, supports more than 40 department-owned  research facilities as well as collaborates with approximately 140 research and commercial organizations worldwide.
