Cybersecurity for Advanced Manufacturing Institute
The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued a request for competitive proposals requesting input on topic areas for the next two National Network of Manufacturing Institutes (NNMIs). UI LABS and [Colorado CAMC] submitted a response to NIST on April 20 in which UI Labs and [Colorado CAMC] proposed the establishment of a Cybersecurity for Advanced Manufacturing Institute (CAMI), focused on R&D, protocols, guidelines, tools and training for the manufacturing industry to address a key need for a cybersecurity framework that protects and enables U.S. manufacturing competitiveness. CAMI will be managed by UI Labs but headquartered in Colorado Springs. In anticipation of being chosen to continue through the competitive process, we are now focusing on the development of a full proposal for CAMI.
