We rely on technology every day to share ideas, secure our democratic processes, preserve access to fresh food and clean water, conduct business and financial transactions, and power our homes and businesses. Malicious cyber actors continue to probe cyberspace, weaponizing the technology that makes our modern way of life possible. Without proper cybersecurity safeguards, information (including intellectual property) can be stolen and abused. AUI has created Woodstar Labs to pioneer new research capabilities in cybersecurity to advance our defenses, particularly for underserved communities in the sciences and for our national critical infrastructure needs. We partner with academia, industry, and government to deliver enhanced protections to those most in need.
