The Cybersecurity Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CyManII) was established to create economically viable, pervasive, and inconspicuous cybersecurity in American manufacturing to secure the digital supply chain and energy automation in response to the Department of Energy’s (DOEs) Funding Opportunity Announcement for Cybersecurity in Energy Efficient Manufacturing.
Led by The University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA), CyManII is an inclusive national Institute with over 15 major leading universities in cybersecurity, smart and energy efficient manufacturing, and deep expertise in supply chains, factory automation, and workforce development. Critically, CyManII leverages the strongest DOE National Laboratories in this area with Oak Ridge National Laboratory leading the nation in advanced manufacturing, Idaho National Laboratory leading in cybersecurity of industrial control systems and physical infrastructure, and Sandia National Laboratory leading the nation in cybersecurity of supply chain management. CyManII aggregates most advanced institutions in smart and advanced manufacturing, securing automation and supply chains, workforce development, and cybersecurity. The team brings to bear the most powerful expertise and infrastructure needed to secure the digital transformation that will continue to propel U.S. innovation in manufacturing for decades.
The National Security Collaboration Center (NSCC) at UTSA, with more than 25,000 square feet of space, has already been dedicated as the home-base for CyManII. The NSCC is where the Institute will conduct administrative, contracting, and fiduciary functions, with key leadership and staffing already operating on behalf of CyManII.
