SEI partners add muscle to Army info assurance

SEI partners add muscle to Army info assurance

In a $1.5 million alliance announced today, Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute and the Army Reserve Information Operations Command will jointly train teams of reservists to conduct information assurance operations and respond to cybersecurity threats.

The Pittsburgh institute's information assurance work could extend beyond the Army to other service branches, said Stephen E. Cross, chief executive officer and director of the institute.

Cross said the work is being sponsored by the undersecretary of Defense for acquisition, technology and logistics.

'We must guard against nontraditional threats and address our cyber vulnerabilities,' said Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.), who helped secure the fiscal 2003 funding. The partnership 'will equip our military to counter threats,' he said.
