Securing and Supporting Research Projects: Facilitation Design Patterns (separate registration is required)

Monday, May 13 | 1:00PM–4:30PM CT | Vevey 4, Second Floor Event Centre
Session Type: Additional Fee Program
Delivery Format: Preconference Workshop
This workshop will help prepare security professionals to support sponsored research projects. It provides an overview of how research operates within Universities; teaches facilitation skills for working with faculty; and provides guidance on how to develop a project specific security plan that meets the requirements of NSD, DoD, and other sponsoring organizations. Working with actual researchers, participants will learn to navigate the gap between the traditional top-down approach to security and the practicalities of everyday research lab infrastructures. This workshop is organized by the ResearchSOC project ( - NSF award 1840034). The ResearchSOC project is focused on bringing together the diverse information security and research communities by fostering the mutual understanding of perspectives.

Outcomes: Understand how research projects differ from classic enterprise administrative environments * Obtain facilitation skills for working with faculty and researchers * Learn how to use specific tools and templates designed for working with research projects
