Cyber Security

Lead member: Dartmouth College In a technology-enabled 24/7 information culture, protecting information with hardware and software solutions alone is not feasible.  While computer scientists and engineers will continue to develop tools for security, mathematicians develop new encryption algorithms, and physicists explore secure quantum computing technology, experts in other disciplines – sociology, psychology, law, and public policy – are needed to understand and tackle emergent cyber space risks.  Enlightened cyber security considers not just technical, but also social, behavioural, cultural, legal, and policy dimensions of cyber space risk.

December 2019 workshop

V.S. Subrahmanian (Dartmouth College), Julian Williams (University of Durham), and Kristiaan Pelckmans (Uppsala University) would like to invite you to attend and participate in the first Matariki Cybersecurity Workshop to be held on the campus of Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH on December 16th and 17th, 2019

The goal of the workshop is to enable faculty, researchers, and students to share their cybersecurity related research with other researchers within the Matariki network so that collaborations can be forged moving forward.  All aspects of cybersecurity including both the technical areas of cybersecurity as well as the relationship of cybersecurity to other disciplines are encouraged. Specific areas of interest include the design and testing of security-proof protocols, securing the Internet of Things, vulnerability analysis, malware analysis, social media attacks, reasoning about hacker groups, insider threat, threat detection and monitoring, and more. Interdisciplinary topics may include cybersecurity governance, the role of cybersecurity in specific vertical sectors (e.g. energy, medicine and health care, law). The broad aim is to establish a joint research agenda in cyber security together with other Matariki partners and to build a Matariki-centered cybersecurity research community. 

If you are interested in attending, please contact the Secretariat or your local Matariki Coordinator in the first instance.
