IIITMK to host research centre

October 08, 2015 12:00 am | Updated 05:50 am IST - Thiruvananthapuram:

The Technopark-based Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management - Kerala (IIITMK) is teaming up with the Stevens Institute of Technology, New Jersey, U.S., to set up a Centre for Research and Innovation in Cyberthreat Resilience(CRICTR) on its campus here.

The proposed centre will be equipped for research, innovation, consultancy, and training in the broad areas related to the development of cyberthreat-resilient IT infrastructure, says IIITMK Director M.S. Rajasree. It is envisaged as a laboratory facility for research and academic programmes.

Dr. Rajasree said the CRICTR would primarily focus on cyberthreat prevention, detection and self-healing using open source modelling software. The centre would provide consultancy services to the government and corporate entities in specific knowledge areas related to cybersecurity.

“As India moves towards the digital age and more governance takes place through the cyberworld, the threats to the systems are multiplying. In this context, it is imperative that we build cyberthreat-resilient ICT infrastructure for supporting the continued governance and growth of our economy,” says Dr. Rajasree.

The IIITMK has submitted a proposal to the Central government for financial assistance to establish the facility. The formal launch of the CRICTR will take place here on Tuesday at an international workshop on cyberthreat-resilience organised by the IIITMK and the Stevens Institute.
