The Evaluating Cyber Security Evidence for Policy Advice (ECSEPA)
project is funded by EPSRC
and supported by the Sociotechnical Security Group
. It is intended to learn more about how the UK Government cybersecurity advisory and policy-making community evaluate evidence in their roles. As part of this, we invite participation in a cyber policy game that tests the participants’ responses to scenarios through a range of escalating crisis scenarios. As part of this participants will be asked to assess a diverse body of evidence in their evaluation of risk, threats and consequences. The overall objective of this research is to understand how such policy-making be better supported.
The policy game will take place on 21st February 2019 in London and will require one full-day of commitment. We invite anyone recently or currently involved in supporting cybersecurity policymakers in the UK, specifically civil servants who provide short and long-term policy advice, either in response to specific crisis incidents or in the context of longer term planning for national security and capacity building.
For a formal invitation see: NCSC Weekly Threat Report 23rd November 2018
