UTSA officially launches Cybersecurity Manufacturing Innovation Institute

November 19, 2020


UTSA Today

UTSA today formally launched the Cybersecurity Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CyManII), a $111 million public-private partnership. The university will lead the institute, entering into a five-year cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy to head up a consortium of 59 proposed member institutions in introducing a cybersecure energy-ROI that drives American manufacturers and supply chains to further adopt secure, energy-efficient approaches, ultimately securing and sustaining the nation’s leadership in global manufacturing competitiveness.

U.S. manufacturers are one of the top targets for cyber criminals and nation-state adversaries, impacting the production of energy technologies such as electric vehicles, solar panels and wind turbines. Integration across the supply chain network and an increased use of automation applied in manufacturing processes can make industrial infrastructures vulnerable to cyberattacks. To protect American manufacturing jobs and workers, CyManII will transform U.S. advanced manufacturing and make manufacturers more energy efficient, resilient and globally competitive against our nation’s adversaries.
