Officials from George Mason and James Madison universities announced May 14 that they will create a federally funded center to provide resources and research for government and industry organizations that protect the nation's critical infrastructure.

    The Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Project, funded by a $6.5 million federal grant, will be led by a partnership between James Madison University and the George Mason University School of Law's National Center for Technology and Law.

    The institutions applied together for the grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology to provide solutions that combine the technical, policy and legal issues involved in CIP and information security.

    "This will give us a strength that does not exist anywhere else in the country," said Linwood Rose, president of James Madison University.
