Dr Genevieve Liveley
University of Bristol
Anticipation and Prospection
Genevieve Liveley is a Reader in Classics, RISCS Fellow, and Turing Fellow at the University of Bristol.
More about Genevieve.
The aim is to 1) map the current landscape of sociotechnical futures expertise in cyber security (across research, government, and industry), 2) build the community of researchers and practitioners involved in this area (including early career researchers and PhD students), 3) frame the core research questions and future strategies for this theme (in collaboration with key stakeholders) and 4) shape the future of futures literacy and anticipatory risk management processes in cyber security.
A portfolio-style report (1) detailing the current and emerging research landscape of anticipation, prospection, and futures literacy in the cyber security and wider sociotechnical risk space. 2) Mapping of future partners, networks, collaboration and funding opportunities; and (3) A summary report of findings and recommendations.
Dr Anna Cartwright
Oxford Brookes University
Quantification and Cyber Risk
Anna Cartwright is Principal Lecturer in Accounting, Finance and Economics and RISCS Fellow at Oxford Brookes University.
Two closely related strands of work underpin the fellowship with the aim to provide critical new insight on the issue of measuring and quantifying cyber risk: (1) to make better use of existing government and open data on cyber-security to inform policy, (2) to explore whether we can leverage the unique position of small IT companies to improve cyber-risk management in SMEs.
- Hold a policy workshop to address the following questions: (a) What data on cyber-security in SMEs is freely available for academic research? (b) What are the priority policy questions we should try to analyse with that data? (c) How can we most effectively analyse the data?
- Launch a competition, based on the outcomes of the policy workshop, to encourage novel data analysis.
- Hold an engagement workshop to feedback on the outcomes of the competition and set a plan for future collaboration and analysis.
- Hold a series of focus groups with small local IT providers to explore how they think best practice can be spread most effectively to SMEs.
Dr Shamal Faily
Secure Development Practices
Shamal is a Principal Lecturer in Systems Security Engineering and co-ordinator of the Bournemouth University Cyber Security Research group (BUCSR).
More about Shamal.
The aim is to draw on existing Secure By Design research to build a UK map of Secure Development research to identify opportunities for collaboration, facilitate community-driven events and networking with other projects to encourage collaboration around additional subthemes. And to develop a Code of Practice for Secure Development, which will provide long-term, sustainable impact of the fellowship activities.
- Develop material for half a day’s onboarding tutorial and then work with 2-3 organisations to embed and capture the evidence of the efficacy and adoption of the delivered content.
- Create a UK map of Secure Development researchers
- Hold 3 community workshops with keynote speakers.
Dr Maria Bada
University of Cambridge
The aim of the fellowship will be to 1) explore the impact of online crime in the UK from the victims’ perspective and 2) understand the role, challenges, and capacity of the police, the judiciary and other authorities in dealing with such crimes. Particular attention will be paid to the question of how and to what extent the situation and needs of victims of online crimes differ from the situation and needs of victims of traditional offline crimes. The Fellowship will deliver policy recommendations for training and risk assessment, a future research agenda, and practical options for supporting similar research going forward.
- Build a community around this topic (academics, private sector, policy makers, law enforcement, judiciary, prosecutors in the UK and/or abroad).
- Create an online repository of relevant work.
- Host 1-2 events during the year (if possible).

I see Digital Responsibility (DR) as a bridge between digital inclusion, digital safety, and security practice. The objective of the Fellowship is to create a space in which policy makers and researchers can meet on the topic of safer digital inclusion. The impact of this work stream would be to provide a platform for work that aims to minimise the unintended digital exclusion and to assess the security impact of intentional digital exclusion.
Roundtable to debate what DR research should contribute to public policy; a showcase on digital economy work in DR; an ECR-led research network in DR; a range of outputs potentially including: a booklet set that can be used by policy makers, anthology of papers and an open source map of the current research landscape.
Dr Tim Stevens
King's College London
Tim is Senior Lecturer in Global Security at King’s College London and head of the KCL Cyber Security Research Group.
The aim of the fellowship is to identify, map and develop the community of UK researchers (academics, private sector, government, civil society) exploring the international dimensions of cybersecurity. It will facilitate community events and networking to encourage multidisciplinary collaboration on specific sub-themes: international order and the geopolitics of cybersecurity; the international political economy of cybersecurity; global cyber governance; cyber statecraft and diplomacy; and cyber conflict and capabilities.
- Map the UK landscape of research in the international dimensions of cybersecurity
- Build a sustainable community of UK researchers in this field, including young scholars
- Identify future partnerships, networks, collaboration and funding opportunities
- Publish a national research strategy white paper for the international dimensions of cybersecurity
