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.
