The Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology (DHS S&T) Directorate has partnered with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to develop a laboratory for cyber research.
The CISA Cybersecurity Laboratory will provide a multi-cloud environment where cyber professionals can collaboratively work on and test cyber-related tools, datasets and tradecraft, DHS said Tuesday.
The laboratory will provide CISA boosted situational awareness via data analytics and help S&T assess computing approaches that support the entire DHS.
Users will access artificial intelligence, machine learning and other analytical tools to process data and develop models. The department expects the laboratory to eventually tackle a wider range of infrastructure security issues beyond just cyber.
