This two day, invitation-only meeting looked at the healthcare sector where the interpretation of complex inputs is crucial to informing risk decisions around data-sharing and public safety, followed by a discussion about how to apply cyber metrics to complex decision-making more generally, asking how data is best presented to the Board and the Policy Community.  On the second day, we invited CRUISSE (Challenging Radical Uncertainty in Science, Society and the Environment – www.cruisse.ac.uk) to apply their problem-solving techniques to a highly complex Cyber Security problem.
