BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Five teams of IU researchers are the recipients of more than $230,000 in internal grants that are designed to provide start-up funding for innovative research addressing critical cybersecurity needs. The grants were awarded by the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research (CACR), part of the Pervasive Technology Institute at Indiana University.

Announcing the grants, CACR Director and Distinguished Professor Fred H. Cate said that the grants were designed to support research that would "help make information and information systems more secure."

The internal grant competition was open to all Indiana University faculty and staff. The successful applicants represent eight different units on both the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses.
