Future cities - cyber security
Cranfield University says our future cities are at risk of being disabled by cyber attacks unless security within organisations can be improved through the use of sophisticated negotiation skills.
Dr Duncan Hodges warns that organisations are in danger of damaging reputational loss if a proper attitude to risk is not taken. He will be speaking at our next Forum on 6th March at the IET in London.
'Putting people and technology together is our area of research, where high level training is required to negotiate security solutions to potential attacks. In organisations there is a push to have remote access over control systems, but the risk in this needs to be properly understood and managed', Duncan comments.
Dr Hodges has worked as a Technology Researcher for the UK Government, a Researcher in the Cyber Security Centre at The University of Oxford, before joining Cranfield as a Lecturer in the Cyber and Influence Group.
