Birds of a Feather
TimeMonday, July 295:15pm - 6:15pm
DescriptionJoin us for a roundtable discussion about the challenges of securing the infrastructure science depends on, lessons learned, and paths forward. Susan Sons and Mary Conley from ResearchSOC, the NSF-funded security operations center for scientific cyberinfrastructure, will facilitate the discussion. CISOs, IT professionals, researchers, and interested community members are welcome.

Scientific cyberinfrastructure has more to contend with than just commodity IT. We have sensor nets, drones, research vehicles, network-connected lab equipment, supercomputers, telescopes, and other control-system based or one-off technologies. These are often distributed across multiple organizations and networks. This BoF session provides an opportunity to connect with others who are taking on similar challenges, both technical and programmatic, in order to support science becoming ever more reproducible, trustworthy, and productive.
