JSU Home » Research & Collaboration

StemIn May 2010, the National Science Foundation awarded Jacksonville State University a grant of $415,000 to support the Critical Infrastructure Security and Assessment Laboratory (CISAL) project. Dr. Guillermo Francia III, as the principal investigator, directs CISAL with Dr. Aaron Garrett, Dr. Ming Yang, Dr. Nourredine Beckouce, and Mr. Terry Marbut as co-principal investigators. CISAL investigates vulnerabilities of critical infrastructure systems, conducts penetration tests of such systems, and recommends measures to protect critical systems. This is a cross-disciplinary project between the Mathematical, Computer and Information Sciences (MCIS) and the Engineering and Technology department.
