We are delighted to announce the results of the RISCS Prize Competition, set up by Fellow Dr. Anna Cartwright for the Quantification and Cyber Risk Theme.

First Place

The winners of the competition were Steven Kemp, David Buil-Gil, Fernando Miro Linares and Nicholas Lord for their excellent paper titled – “When do businesses report cybercrime? Findings from a UK study”.

Second Place

We were delighted to award second place to Lukas Walter and Daniel Woods, for their paper titled – “Reviewing the Likelihood of Cyber Incident”.

The prize winners were announced during the Quantification and Cyber Risk Workshop: Optimising data use held online on the 2nd of March 2022. The workshop was a resounding success, and the competition entrants gave engaging presentations covering their findings.

Prize winners have been provided with signed awards and will receive £100 per paper, to be split across the authors equally.

We felt that the competition and the workshop worked effectively to bring together researchers in the area of Quantification and Cyber Risk. Events like these help us to build the community, make connections and achieve our objectives by developing sociotechnical cyber security research within our themes.

We would like to thank everyone that contributed to the workshop and all those that entered the competition.

Congratulations to the competiton winners! Keep an eye out, we look forward to holding more competitions in the future.
