WISE sets its Mission in Abingdon

The WISE Community braved a surprisingly frosty British February to meet at Cosener’s House in Abingdon, kindly hosted by STFC-RAL. In addition to community presentations, the group made good progress on understanding the next evolution for SCI – developing a reusable policy pack for research infrastructures. This work will continue jointly between the AARC Project and WISE’s SCI Working Group.

Four new ideas were presented as suitable topics for WISE, including activities to:

  • produce guidelines for Data Leak Prevention
  • improve security information exchange between infrastructures
  • study the security implications of the Science DMZ
  • understand the wider community’s needs for coordinated security communication challenges

To round off the workshop, WISE reflected on the “What, Why and How” of the Community to develop a mission strategy. This will be continued by a small group within WISE and used to guide the direction of future WISE activities.

A big “Thank You” to STFC-RAL for the memorable trip!
