DHS Cyber Division Unveils Electronic Library Platform for Industry and Academia Research Community

cybersecurityThe cybersecurity division within the Department of Homeland Security‘s science and technology directorate has created an electronic library platform that supplies access to infrastructure and event data to the industrial and academic research community.

DHS said Monday the Information Marketplace for Policy and Analysis of Cyber-risk & Trust platform will aim to help facilitate new developments, test theories and workable systems to support actions against cyber threats.

“The system serves as a matchmaker between data supply and demand and a mediator for the actual data provisioning,” said Erin Kenneally, IMPACT program manager.

“It lowers the barrier to entry for researchers in the U.S. and international partner countries to find and contribute data for cyber security R&D… In this way, IMPACT is able to continually add new data that is responsive to cyber security risk management.”

DHS added IMPACT supports infrastructure risk research through academia, industry and government partnerships that help make large-scale datasets available for the development of cyber security technologies.
