Capitol Hill hearing on NSF-funded INSuRE project highlights UMBC student research

Two posters created by UMBC student researchers were highlighted during an informational hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, December 16, focused on the Information Security Research and Education (INSuRE) project.

UMBC is one of seven universities nationwide participating in INSuRE, a multi-disciplinary and multi-level collaborative research initiative. Through INSuRE, undergraduate and graduate students have the opportunity to work on various problems related to cybersecurity while being mentored by industry professionals.

Alan Sherman, professor of computer science, is a co-Principal Investigator (PI) of the INSuRE project, which began in 2013. He is leading seven UMBC students across three research groups as part of a 2015 fall course connected with the project, which is funded by a nearly $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
