2018 NSF Cybersecurity Summit for Large Facilities and Cyberinfrastructure

20/08/2018 to 25/08/2018

The NSF cyberinfrastructure ecosystem presents an aggregate of complex cybersecurity needs (such as scientific data and instruments, unique computational and storage resources, complex collaborations) as compared to other organizations and sectors.

This community has a unique opportunity to develop information security practices tailored to these needs, as well as break new ground on efficient, effective ways to protect information assets while supporting science. The Summit will bring together leaders in NSF cyberinfrastructure and cybersecurity to continue the process initiated in 2013: building a trusting, collaborative community, and seriously addressing that community's core cybersecurity challenges.

The following is a quick snapshot of the three-days general schedule:

August 21st: Half-day and full-day training workshops

August 22nd, 23rd: Keynote and plenary presentations

The Summit seeks proposals for presentations, breakout and training sessions. It offers opportunities for student scholarships.

EU to strenghten its expertise in cybersecurity research, technology and industrial developmen

Europe is stepping up its protection against cybersecurity threats, and is discussing a new structure of pool of expertise which will help secure the digital single market and increase the EU’s autonomy in the area of cybersecurity.

Europe is currently working on the establishment of a top knowledge base for cybersecurity and a network of national cybersecurity coordination centres called the European Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Centre and the Network of National Coordination Centres.

Cyber Insurance and its Contribution to Cyber Risk Mitigation - Leiden March 25-29
25/03/2019 to 29/03/2019

The rise in both the scale and severity of recent cyberattacks demands new thinking about cybersecurity risk and the mitigation and transfer of that risk. Cyber insurance is one potential way to manage risk by transferring damage liability, but the cyber insurance market is immature and the understanding and actuarial knowledge of cyber-risk is currently underdeveloped.
