NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, ESnet Organize Working Group on Open Science Threats

Managing the security risks to scientific instruments, data and cyberinfrastructure is a priority for creating a trustworthy environment for science. Assessing and managing the risks to the integrity and availability of science, and sometimes also privacy issues, involves making judgments on the likelihood and consequences of threats. Deep experience in understanding cybersecurity and the science being supported is needed to achieve these goals. As a result, ESnet and the NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence are collaborating with research and education community leaders to develop a threat profile for open science to formally capture and benchmark this expertise, allowing other organizations to apply these best practices more broadly.
