Building a Scottish Cyber Resilience Research Community

15th February 2016

Against the background of the development of the Scottish Government's new Cyber Resilience Strategy, and its goal that by 2020 Scotland has "a growing and renowned cyber resilience research community", Building a Scottish Cyber Resilience Research Community, was held on Monday 15th February at the Scottish Police College, Court Room, Tulliallan, 10.00 to 16.00.

This event aimed to find opportunities for academics to work with colleagues in universities, policing, and industry in Scotland and beyond in the area of cyber resilience. Co-hosted by the Scottish Institute for Policing Research, the Scottish Informatics and Computing Science Alliance, and the Scottish Police College, it gave researchers from different academic disciplines with an interest in the field the chance to talk about their work and share ideas about future projects with potential partners.

A key part of the day was the opportunity to hear from those involved in funding cyber research activity and from those who have previously secured financial support for cyber-related projects. The day had some formal presentations, but the emphasis was on working to help researchers and practitioners to build on current projects and develop new collaborative activities, including a "sandpit" at which people were able to pitch their ideas.
