The Center for Cybersecurity Analytics and Automation (CCAA) has been established under the National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers (IUCRC) program. The center is a multi-university and multi-industry consortium currently led by George Mason University, in partnership with the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Colorado State University, and a broad membership of industry and government organizations. The Center was originally established and led by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
The goal of the Center for Cybersecurity Analytics and Automation (CCAA) is to build the critical mass of inter-disciplinary academic researchers and industry partners for addressing current and future challenges in cybersecurity analytics and automation to improve service assurability, security and resiliency of enterprise IT systems, cloud/SDN data centers, and cyber-physical systems by applying innovative analytics and automation solutions.
Each IUCRC center is established to conduct research that is of interest to both the industry and the university with which it is involved, with the provision that the industry must provide major support to the center at all times. The centers rely primarily on the involvement of graduate students in their research projects, thus developing students who are knowledgeable in industrially relevant research.
