Workshop Details

For teams to make cyber resilient products, security awareness is necessary but not sufficient.

Product team members have security requirements, but lack the security expertise to convey them or even recognise their existence. Unfortunately, security team members may lack expertises of the product and problems space to capture these security requirements on their own. The more complex the product or problem space is, the more asymmetric knowledge becomes, and the harder it becomes to collaborate.

The good news is that solutions to “wicked” problems like this may exist in disciplines such as the humanities and social sciences.

The objective of this half-day hybrid workshop is to bring together a community of researchers, practitioners, and educators broadly in interdisciplinary perspectives on Cyber Security in order to discuss these problems, and share ideas and practical suggestions that will improve knowledge exchange across teams. The workshop will include the HMG perspective of this topic, a panel with invited speakers discussing the challenges and opportunities around knowledge asymmetries, and breakout groups on different aspects of this theme. Workshop participants will get the chance to network with likeminded collaborators, and contribute to a growing UK community in Secure Development Practices.

When registering, please answer the question to state whether you will be attending online or in person.

Please note: both in person and virtual attendees will recieve an email with joining instructions and a Zoom link prior to event, to allow for flexibility.

This event is a collaboration between RISCS and The Robert Gordon Unversity School of Computing.
