December 10, 2002

In the Pittsburgh Post Gazette column, "The Private Sector: Sustainable computing: It is vital to rectify our ubiquitous information systems, which are dangerously insecure and undependable," William Guttman, Distinguished Service Professor of Economics and Technology in the Heinz School, and Director of the Sustainable Computing Consortium at CMU, refers to the university as "uniquely equipped to tackle this issue."

Guttman points to the Software Engineering Institute, the Computer Emergency Response Team, the Center for Computing and Communications Security and the Sustainable Computing Consortium as key players, having pioneered a massive"sustainable computing" effort this year to boost the dependability and security of IT systems.
