Application of Artificial Intelligence to Cybersecurity for Protecting National Critical Infrastructure

Consortium On National Critical Infrastructure Security (CONCISE) Project

Led by UTSA, the (CONCISE) consortium will ATTRACT, EDUCATE and DEVELOP cybersecurity RESEARCH skills for underrepresented minority students from four Minority Serving Institutes (UTSA, UNLV, NCA&T and SSU). The CONCISE consortium also aims at creating a sustainable WORKFORCE PIPELINE between the four universities with three U.S. DOE/NNSA national laboratories (SNL, INL and NNSS). We expect more than one hundred CONCISE graduates will join U.S. DOE cybersecurity workforce by the end of 2026.
