A professor at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law has been named interim director of a $2 million initiative to stimulate collaboration in higher education cybersecurity efforts and to provide leadership on strategic cybersecurity issues nationally and globally.
Fred H. Cate, distinguished professor, C. Ben Dutton Professor of Law, and director of the Center of Applied Cybersecurity Research at IU, will serve as interim director of the initiative. The new collaboration will focus on cybersecurity operations and research, complementing the longstanding efforts of EDUCAUSE and the Higher Education Information Security Council. It will devote particular attention to security aspects of high performance computing and networking, notably software-defined networks and cloud services delivered over such networks. This will help support community researchers focused on these areas in relation to the Internet2 network and associated operational experience.
