- NIST is setting up a National Cyber Security Center of Excellence...and is in line to get 10-million dollars to do it. The Senate Appropriations Committee has approved the money for the National Institute of Standards and Technology to create the new center, which is designed to help the public and private sectors cooperate on cyber security issues. The Baltimore Business Journal reports that in addition to the $10-million dollars for the center, the committee also approved another $15-million for NIST to research cyber threats. The center could bring up to 28,000 jobs to the state. No word on the location.
