AUI’s Cybersecurity Division
Woodstar Labs is a cyber technology and analysis firm dedicated to serving our nation’s most pressing cybersecurity needs.
Mission & Vision
Securing the Foundations of Society
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.
Woodstar Labs helps organizations work with the Department of Defense and keep sensitive information secure as a Licensed Publication Partner with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Advisory Board.
The Election Process
The integrity of the United States election process relies on thorough cybersecurity safeguards and policies. Woodstar Labs is currently working with State Board of Elections personnel to maintain this security.
The Power Grid
Protecting the U.S. power grid is critical to national security. Increasing the grid’s resilience against cyber attacks is of upmost importance. Woodstar Labs chartered the National Commission on Grid Resilience for this very reason.
Cybersecurity education is the first and most important defense against cyber threats. Woodstar Labs is currently working to develop online and in-person cybersecurity education and training opportunities.
