BLOOMINGTON (AP) — Indiana University's Bloomington campus soon will get an opportunity to lead a group of institutions to solve cybersecurity issues after it received a $5 million grant from the National Science Foundation.

The grant designates IU's Center for Trustworthy Scientific Cyberinfrastructure as a Cybersecurity Center of Excellence that will help solve the computer and software security challenges facing the National Science Foundation. The center is a three-year collaboration between the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications.

Von Welch, director of IU's Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research, says the science community and researchers face unique computer security issues, which the CTSC will get a chance to help solve.
