Trusted CI Webinar Series

We've launched a webinar series to fulfill our mission of providing readily available cybersecurity services tailored to the NSF science community. 

The webinars are recorded and will be linked to this page for later viewing. Each webinar includes time for questions from attendees. We use Zoom to conduct the webinars.

Upcoming topics are communicated on our blog.  If you have questions or comments after the webinar, feel free post to the discussion mailing list. See our call for presentations to submit a request to present.
