Research Security & Foreign Influence

The National Counterintelligence Security Center (NCSC) has released a Fact Sheet on Protecting Critical and Emerging U.S. Technologies from Foreign Threats, which identifies five key technology sectors which must be safeguarded to ensure U.S. economic and national security: artificial intelligence, bioeconomy, autonomous systems, quantum computing and semiconductors. The Fact Sheet provides information about foreign intelligence threats to each technology sector and ways both organizations and individuals can mitigate risk.

This Fact Sheet, along with other key resources related to foreign influence and research security can be found on a new Research Security webpage hosted by the Office of Research Compliance (ORC). I encourage you to review these new resources so that you are both informed about best practices and compliant with University and sponsor requirements.
