The National Institute of Standards and Technology released video of Tuesday’s opening of the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, a public-private collaboration for accelerating integration of computer security solutions.
NIST will partner with the State of Maryland and Montgomery County, Md., in creating the center.
NIST was given $10 million in appropriations to establish the partnership to operate the center. It will provide a state-of-the-art computing facility near NIST’s Gaithersburg, Md., campus, where researchers from NIST will work collaboratively with both users and vendors of cybersecurity products and services. The center will host multi-institutional, collaborative efforts that build on expertise from industry and government, the agency said.
