3:10 PM THE INTERFACE BETWEEN MAN AND MACHINE: ASSESSING THE LIMITATIONS OF CYBER TECHNOLOGY AND MAXIMISING THE READINESS OF THE HUMAN CYBER OPERATOR

Industry has worked hard to develop a range of innovative solutions that can defend the network and the information stored within it against cyber degradation and attack. Technology, however, can only take us so far. Delivering a truly robust cyber defence strategy will depend on overcoming current training gaps, so that cyber personnel and the broader workforce can effectively identify and respond to attacks on the network. This panel will examine the limitations of technology, and will help establish a clear training framework for the cyber force of tomorrow. Discussion points will include:

  • To what extent does the provision of greater information and network security depend on enhanced training, and what obstacles must be overcome if that training is to be effectively delivered?
  • Drawing on examples of simulated cyber training exercises to identify and overcome weaknesses for existing CERTS
  • Upskilling cyber teams so that they are equipped to cope with as diverse a range of threats as possible
