In mid-August, the NCSA Cybersecurity Division participated in the 2016 NSF Cybersecurity Summit for Large Facilities and Cyberinfrastructure in Arlington, VA. The theme this year was strengthening trustworthy science. As members of CTSC, the NCSA CSD team presented two of the all day training sessions and participated in a panel discussion.
James Basney and Spherical Cow Group's Scott Koranda presented the training "Federated Identity Management for Research Organizations." The goal of the training was the provide an overview of the challenges research organizations, especially virtual organizations, face when utilizing identity management tools and services to manage access to their resources.

The goal of the training was to provide a detailed walkthrough of the log analysis life cycle with interactive demonstrations using the Bro network analysis software.

Adam Slagell was a member of the panel talk "FBI Case 216," a cyber attack that Slagell and other members of NCSA helped investigate. While the attack occurred over 13 years ago, its impact on cybersecurity, and the lessons learned, are still relevant today.
