Department of Homeland Security launches information marketplace for cyber risk research

The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Cyber Security Division (CSD) has created the Information Marketplace for Policy and Analysis of Cyber-risk & Trust (IMPACT), a publicly available electronic library that provides access to infrastructure and event data.

IMPACT supports internet infrastructure risk research by partnering with academia, industry and government to make available large-scale datasets, according to a statement by the DHS. “The system serves as a matchmaker between data supply and demand and a mediator for the actual data provisioning,” said IMPACT Program Manager Erin Kenneally. “It lowers the barrier to entry for researchers in the U.S. and international partner countries to find and contribute data for cyber security R&D.”
