Finding balance: how learning from different disciplines can help product and security teams understand each other
Wed 2 March, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm| Free
RISCS Secure Development Practices Community Workshop run in collaboration with Robert Gordon Unversity School of Computing (Hybrid Event)
Please note this is a hybrid event – run both in-person and online.
In-person – registration for the event will open at 12:00
Virtual – attendees will receive joining instructions and a Zoom link before the event.
For teams to make cyber resilient products, security awareness is necessary but not sufficient.
Product team members have security requirements but lack the security expertise to convey them or even recognise their existence. Unfortunately, security team members may lack expertise of the product and problems space to capture these security requirements on their own. The more complex the product or problem space is, the more asymmetric knowledge becomes, and the harder it becomes to collaborate.
The good news is that solutions to “wicked” problems like this may exist in disciplines such as the humanities and social sciences.
The objective of this half-day hybrid workshop is to bring together a community of researchers, practitioners, and educators broadly in interdisciplinary perspectives on Cyber Security in order to discuss these problems, and share ideas and practical suggestions that will improve knowledge exchange across teams. The workshop will include the HMG perspective of this topic, a panel with invited speakers discussing the challenges and opportunities around knowledge asymmetries, and breakout groups on different aspects of this theme. Workshop participants will get the chance to network with like-minded collaborators, and contribute to a growing UK community in Secure Development Practices.
Please note: both in-person and virtual attendees will receive an email with joining instructions and a Zoom link prior to the event, to allow for flexibility.
