The Cyber Security Research Alliance (CSRA), a private, non-profit research consortium, announced today that it will partner with Drexel University and George Mason University to shore up cyber physical system security in infrastructure and medicine.
The two universities will participate in research, beginning with a survey and taxonomy, aimed at advancing cyber security in transportation vehicles, medical devices and the power grid, CSRA said in a news release.
“Drexel and George Mason Universities were selected from a number of outstanding academic research proposals for their approach and understanding of the challenges in securing cyber physical systems,” said Lee Holcomb, CSRA president and director, engineering and technology, for Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions.
Lockheed Martin is one of the founding partners of the alliance along with Advanced Micro Devices, Honeywell, Intel Corp. and RSA.
