Cyber Security Sciences Institute (CSSI)
PI: Daniel Tauritz
Time Period: 05/06/2019 – 01/01/2020
The Cyber Security Sciences Institute (CSSI), an Information Science and Technology Institute (ISTI) sub-institute, is a multi-year R&D and educational collaboration between Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and S&T with a mission to create a solid scientific foundation for cyber security research and build on that foundation to solve real-world cyber security problems. CSSI will help address the Nation's cyber security needs by identifying well-qualified students to perform mission-relevant research, providing collaborative opportunities for career staff working on cyber security challenges, and developing future research and development concepts. LANL's collaborations with CSSI will strengthen LANL's and national cyber capability. Successful research resulting from CSSI's collaborative research will be used to improve the cyber security posture of LANL, NNSA, DOE, and the nation. CSSI has a particular focus on bridging academic cyber research and cyber practitioner needs. It also promotes collaborative design of cyber curricula.
