SICSA Cyber Security Research Theme Event: Scottish Cyber Resilience Policy Needs

Date(s) - 26/10/2022
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The Strategic Framework for a Cyber Resilient Scotland aims to improve the cyber resilience of its people, its communities, and its businesses and organisations.

This session is for any academics who are interested in making an impact in a policy area where many disciplines converge – psychology, anthropology, business, engineering, and technology are all important, with interesting problems across the public, private, and third sectors. We welcome those who are curious as well as those who already understand how their expertise applies.

Impact happens when contributions are timely and well-evidenced.  There will be brief talks to lay out the Scottish Government Cyber Resilience Unit’s current priorities – a good indicator of timeliness, although they also need to know what they don’t know – and what evidence for policy looks like.  We then intend two breakout groups – one for human factors, and one for technical cyber security issues.  Exactly how we conduct the breakout groups will depend on who signs up.  Opportunities for SICSA kick-starter project grants will be discussed with participants at the event.

  • Daniel Sellers, Scottish Government Cyber Resilience Unit

This event is co-organised by SICSA and the Scottish Government Cyber Resilience Unit.
