Univer­sity cy­ber­se­cu­rity cen­ter names leader

Dayton Daily News - - BUSINESS -

A new Day­ton cy­ber­se­cu­rity cen­ter took a step for­ward when it named its first leader.

Rusty Bald­win, UD dis­tin­guished re­search pro­fes­sor in the de­part­ment of com­puter science, was named the first di­rec­tor of re­search for the Univer­sity’s new Cen­ter for Cy­ber­se­cu­rity & Data In­tel­li­gence, which was es­tab­lished to en­hance the cy­ber­health of the Day­ton com­mu­nity.

“I look for­ward to ad­vanc­ing the re­search mis­sion and rep­u­ta­tion of the cen­ter and de­vel­op­ing and de­liv­er­ing pro­gram­ming that will cul­ti­vate cy­ber­se­cu­rity re­search in­ter­ests in fac­ulty, stu­dents and depart­ments cam­pus-wide,” Bald­win said.

The cen­ter, which will be­gin con­struc­tion Nov. 12 on its per­ma­nent home on the third floor of UD’s Miriam Hall, pro­vides free, pub­lic re­sources to help pro­tect sen­si­tive data.

The cen­ter’s part­ners also work with UD fac­ulty ex­perts and in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy staff to grow a trained cy­ber work­force in the re­gion, iden­tify and test new cy­ber­se­cu­rity prac­tices, create ed­u­ca­tion and aware­ness pro­grams for em­ploy­ees, and train IT teams on in­ci­dent readi­ness and re­sponse.
