Description of the video:

Indiana University is a leader in addressing difficult cybersecurity challenges. Home to multiple organizations and initiatives devoted to the safety and security of research and information, IU has the knowledge and experience to keep data safe in an increasingly perilous cyberworld. Our cybersecurity roster includes the Global Network Operations Center, or GlobalNOC, which designs, monitors, and protects some of the world's largest and fastest research and education networks. OmniSOC, or Omni Security Operations Center, a first of its kind, 24/7/365 cybersecurity center for higher education, devoted to reducing the time between threat awareness and threat mitigation. REN-ISAC, The Research and Education Networks Information Sharing and Analysis Center, which shares security information and best practices with more than 620 college and universities. ResearchSOC, which addresses the unique cybersecurity concerns of the research community and keeps the nation's greatest
scientific endeavors safe. The National Science Foundation Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, or Trusted CI, which helps protect more than $7 billion of NSF-funded research projects. And the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research, or CACR, which identifies and addresses difficult problems facing public and private communities. Together, with the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, CACR also works to develop cybersecurity solutions for difficult environments through the Principals-based Assessment for Cybersecurity Toolkit, or PACT. IU is a leader in cybersecurity academic programs, as well. Three of IU's top-ranked schools -- the Kelley School of Business, the Maurer School of Law, and the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering -- now offer cybersecurity degrees and certificates. IU also offers an interdisciplinary MS program in cybersecurity risk management. Security and Privacy in Informatics, Computing, and Engineering, or SPICE, works to design better systems that balance security, privacy, and usability. And the Ostrom Workshop's Program on Cybersecurity and Internet Governance uses a multidisciplinary, multisector method to develop sustainable models of internet
governance and an equitable cyber peace. At Indiana University, we work to safeguard some of the nation's greatest assets, research, and intellectual capitol and educate others to do the same.
