Beyond Tech: Collaborative Strategies for Cyber Resilience in Scotland

Date(s) - 30/05/2024
10:45 am - 1:00 pm

Abertay cyberQuarter, Multimedia Suite

Let’s do research that makes Scotland safer against cyber-attacks.
Technology alone will not protect Scotland from cyber-attacks. This hybrid session will bring stakeholders from the public, third, and private sectors together with academic researchers from disciplines including psychology, anthropology, engineering, business, and computer science to hear about some current research needs and discuss how to formulate new, impactful research. We welcome those who are curious as well as those who already understand how their expertise might apply.
