President Eighmy delivers talk at Cyber Texas Conference

August 16, 2018

President Taylor Eighmy delivered a talk on Building Partnerships to meet Global Security Challenges at the 2018 Cyber Texasconference, where he promoted the launch of the National Security Collaboration Center (NSCC). Government and industry partners are primed for co-location, with contracts and agreements currently under negotiation. Sandia National Laboratory placed its first scientist at UTSA to work closely with faculty and students in cybersecurity areas. In early August, UTSA leadership visited Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to discuss collaborative research and faculty exchange, as plans move forward to incorporate PNNL as a partner of the NSCC. New industry partners Booz Allen Hamilton and IP Secure provided letters of support and commitment for the NSCC.
