OCYSS Online CYber Security decision support System

01/01/2017 to 31/12/2020

This interdisciplinary project brings together leading academic experts from the University of Nottingham, UK and Carnegie Mellon University, USA, with a strongly integrated project partner: CESG - the UK's National Technical Authority for Information Assurance. The project is designed to leverage the distributed, multiple human stakeholder nature of Cyber Security (CyS) by developing a novel framework with the necessary scientific underpinning to improve user access to user-tailored CyS information, operationalised as a cutting-edge, data-driven Online CYber Security decision support System (OCYSS). This approach id designed to directly address an acute shortage of availability and access to highly qualified CyS experts by both small-to-large scale users from government to industry. 
 The role of OCYSS is to effectively and efficiently integrate expert and user inputs, capturing commonly uncertain vulnerability levels of individual components as well as vulnerabilities arising from the interaction/combination of these components, to efficiently deliver appropriate, balanced, informed and up-to-date threat analysis and CyS decision support to users.

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.
