Date: Friday 16 October 2015.

Venue: Alloa, United Kingdom | Tulliallan Castle

This symposium brought together knowledge from many different domains in order to create knowledge exchange and collaborative infrastructures, which address the key cyber risks that Scotland, the UK and Europe faces. Key focal points are:

  • Education and Training within Cyber Education.
  • Gamification and Virtualisation of Cyber Security Training.
  • Cybercrime Risks, Malware Analysis/Detection and Fraud.
  • Security Data Gathering and Analytics.
  • Cyber Risks, Resilience and Failover.
  • Critical Infrastructure and First Response.
  • Real-time Analytics on Risks.
  • Risks to privacy and identity theft.

There was a special focus on key areas such as the skills gap in cyber education, law enforcement training, and in the provision of a range of training infrastructures. The work was supported within the DFET EU project, which aims to train security professionals in key areas of malware, fraud and related areas.
