A partnership between Industry, Academia, and Government working to solve the security problems of tomorrow today.
The Center for Information Protection is a National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/U CRC). The National Science Foundation’s I/U CRC program is devoted to improving the performance capacity of the U.S. industrial enterprise. Over the past two decades, over fifty I/U CRCs have led the way with a new era of partnerships between universities and industry by producing high-quality, industry-relevant, fundamental research.
Starting in 2010 the CIP will merge with the Software Engineering Research Center (SERC) led by Ball State University. This new center will be called Security and Software Engineering Research Center S2ERC. The new center is a consortium of five universities (Ball State, Iowa State, Purdue, University of West Florida, and University of Illinois at Chicago). The S2ERC will provide security and software engineering leadership in areas such as software requirements, design, maintenance, usability, reliability, testing, process improvement, vulnerability analysis, network security and system defense. By joining the center you will be able to leverage your membership fees to gain access to over $750,000 of funded research each year. You will also gain access to the best students and faculty at these universities. For more information click here.
New members are welcome to join the center at any time.
