Excellence in Secure Cloud Computing Research and Education!

UTSA's Institute for Cyber Security (ICS) established the NSF-supported CREST Center for Security and Privacy Enhanced Cloud Computing (C-SPECC) in September 2017, in partnership with UTSA's Colleges of Sciences, Business, Education and Engineering, and UTSA's Cyber Center for Security and Analytics, and its Open Cloud Institute. C-SPECC is a unit within ICS. Prof. Ravi Sandhu serves as the C-SPECC Director and Lead Principal Investigator.

C-SPECC goals are:

(i) to pursue excellence in research, innovation and education in secure cloud computing,
(ii) to increase participation of underrepresented groups in high tech computing, and
(iii) to pursue innovative research-based educational strategies in this arena.
