Join us for a conversation with Heartland Science and Technology Group about a newly released cyber security management tool, the Cyber Secure Dashboard. We’ll discuss how emerging NIST standards and federal regulations applied to the DoD supply chain are driving the need for a more standardized approach to cybersecurity -  and how the Dashboard’s approach might be useful in the energy systems space.



Glen R. Salo
An electrical engineer by education and profession, Glen is an entrepreneur that has successfully established multiple technical teams and organizational units to support government programs, private industry, and public good missions for small, large, and independent not-for-profit businesses. He began his leadership roles by forming a technical team to design antennas for ultra-wideband radars and develop simulation tools for lightning strike prediction. From there, he established multiple organizational groups that provided computational physics, software development, accredited web services, remote sensing, unmanned aerial systems (UAS), web application development, and food industry services for diverse private and public-sector markets. He has a strong technical background in electromagnetic phenomenology, scientific software development, and engineering analysis and design; and he has extensive experience leading multi-organizational research programs. A native of Michigan, Glen earned a BSE in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan and an MS in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois.

Chantelle Hougland
Chantelle brings more than two decades of MarCom experience to the Heartland tech transition team. She has serially participated in nine tech start-up ventures -all emerging from research conducted at UIUC. With the inevitable launch of her own marketing consultancy in 2011, she finally had to admit to herself, and to the world, that she was addicted to the start-up culture. Now specializing in launch marketing for new tech ventures, she continues to work most frequently with engineer/scientists-turned-entrepreneurs - transitioning technologies from the end of the R&D phase into viable, launch-ready products. Chantelle has a B.A. in Communication from the University of Illinois.

Heartland Science & Technology builds greater-good technology solutions. We are a not-for-profit engaged in scientific research and engineering development. We partner with private industry, government and academia to solve complex, big-picture technology issues that would be difficult or impossible for any single sector to solve independently. Our portfolio is diverse. It currently includes projects addressing national infrastructure protection, precision agriculture in support of environmental conservation, national supply-chain cybersecurity, and high-performance scientific computing resource sharing.

About the CREDC Seminar Series:

This seminar series is presented by the Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium (CREDC), a multi-university research effort. CREDC, a successor to the earlier TCIPG Project, was founded in 2016 with support from the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. It is housed in the Information Trust Institute, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
