Videos from the 2020 CLTC Research Exchange Series

The CLTC Research Exchange is an annual showcase of the research funded by the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity.  This year’s Research Exchange was presented as a series of online events, each with a distinct theme. In addition to showcasing research sponsored by CLTC grants, the events featured conversations with invited guests from industry, reflecting CLTC’s mission to be a two-way ‘bridge’ between the research community and practitioners in the field.
