As a result of this workshop, participants will have

  • Developed a clear mutual understanding of the research environments and systems in which they operate (UK and India) and of their respective ‘research cultures'
  • Formed evidenced opinions on the strengths, weaknesses and complementarities of their respective research capabilities. In particular, they will be able to judge the quality and value of past and current research outputs
  • In some sense ‘mapped’ current cyber security research in the UK and India
  • Identified which, if any, key areas of research offer the greatest potential for mutual benefit, and the nature of that benefit, as a result of future UK-India collaboration
  • Identified (for those key areas) aims, benefits, issues and the most effective means of pursuing further activity

Topics of discussion:

  • Understanding and monitoring systems and networks
  • Risk identification, reduction, mitigation and management
  • Making systems more resilient
  • Cyber cirme
  • Privacy and security in Online Social Media
  • Human factors and usable security
