"Achieving Allied Resiliency on Semiconductors"

Abstract
In his presentation, Andrew will discuss the complex strategic and geopolitical challenges related to the semiconductor industry. The United States and key allies (“the Silicon Allies”) are actively seeking greater resilience against a wide range of risks, with a principal focus so far on cultivating and supporting domestic industries as a hedge against geopolitical and other risks that emerge from having key nodes in the supply chain serviced by overseas suppliers. Andrew introduces a recently published study on the current status of the semiconductor industry and proposes recommendations to reduce asymmetric interdependencies.

"An upward multidisciplinary journey in cyber studies"

Abstract
I have been involved for almost 20 years in multidisicplinary studies in the overall area of Internet sciences. This talk will lean on my personal journey as a computer scientist that has moved from very technical dimensions of computer sciences to geopolitics. I will reflect on the difficulty of doing multidisciplinary research specially at early stage of career. I will illustrate my talk with concrete example that shows clearly the importance of multidisciplinary research and will describe its pitfalls and also beauty and interest.

Interview with Dr Joe Burton in Novaator (in Estonian).

Keynote speakers

  • Dr Joe Burton, University of Waikato, Marie Curie Fellow at Université libre de Bruxelles - Security Cultures and Cyber Warfare” 

Abstract

Cyber security culture normally refers to the culture of organisations and how aware and responsive they are to cyber security risks and threats. Drawing on the strategic culture literature, this presentation identifies and critically examines a number of wider and larger security cultures that have had an outsized and underappreciated influence on cyber defence as well as the development and use of offensive cyber capabilities.  In particular, the presentation examines the interrelationship between hacker culture, military culture, and corporate cyber security culture and how ideas, behaviours and security practices in these transnational communities have contributed to a dangerous and unstable international cyber security environment.

BIO

Dr Joe Burton is a Senior Lecturer in International Security at the New Zealand Institute for Security and Crime Science, University of Waikato, New Zealand.  He holds a Doctorate in International Relations and a Master of International Studies degree from the University of Otago and an undergraduate degree in International Relations from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.  Joe is the recipient of the US Department of State SUSI Fellowship, the Taiwan Fellowship, and has been visiting researcher at the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE).  He is the author of NATO's Durability in a Post-Cold War World (SUNY Press 2018) editor of the new Routledge volume, Emerging Technologies and International Security: Machines, the State and War (Routledge 2020) and his work has been published in Asian Security, Defence Studies, Political Science and with a variety of other leading academic publishers.  Joe is currently a Marie Curie fellow (MSCA-IF) at Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) completing the two-year European Commission-funded project Strategic Cultures of Cyber Warfare (CYBERCULT).  He also coordinates the CYDIPLO Jean Monnet Network, which examines the emerging practice of cyber diplomacy.

  • Dr Aarthi Krishna, freelance cyber security expert - "Diving into the CISO’s mind

Abstract

The CISO in today’s large organization is more than just a security manager. This multifaceted role has evolved over the years from being only technically focused to highly business-focused. CISOs today have found their way to the boardroom and are increasing reporting directly to the CEO. This talk will give an overview of what some of the major focus areas are for the CISOs today. It will highlight how driving strategic initiatives within an organization is a constant balancing act with operational management.

Abstract

In this talk, prof Pagliarini will address some of the most well known vulnerabilities studied in the domain of Hardware Security. Threats such as piracy of integrated circuits, side-channel attacks, and hardware trojan horses will be introduced, as well as the means to guarantee trustworthiness in the circuits (and systems) that are targeted by these threats. Finally, a discussion between the similarities (and differences) between cyber security and hardware security will be presented.

Tallinn University of Technology Centre for Digital Forensics and Cyber Security, IT Academy and the IT Law Programme at the University of Tartu invite you to attend the 1st Interdisciplinary Cyber Research (ICR) workshop to be held at the Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia on the 18th of July, 2015. The aim of the workshop is to bring together young as well as established scholars undertaking research in various disciplines related to information and communication technologies such as computer sciences, political and social sciences, and law.

18th of July, 2015 — Tallinn, Estonia
Tallinn University of Technology, SOC building, Akadeemia tee 3, classrooms SOC-211 & SOC-212

The interdisciplinary format of the workshop promotes sharing and discussing novel research across different domains, thereby allowing for the creation of new synergies as well as being informed and inspired by “cyber”-research carried out by other disciplines than your own. Foremost, the workshop offers a friendly and forward-thinking environment for getting feedback on your ideas from an international pool of researchers. The workshop will be running in parallel sessions dedicated to more specific research areas, each session being chaired by established scholars and professionals.

Participants are requested to submit a 1000-word abstract. Abstracts should explain the relevance of the research, outline principle research questions and expected or achieved results. In addition to young researchers and scholars, we welcome student submissions based on their Master or PhD thesis research. Selected authors are invited to present their ideas at the workshop and all selected abstracts will be published as workshop proceedings by Tallinn University of Technology (with an ISBN number). Selected authors are also invited to submit their research as an academic article for established academic journals, subject to additional review process.
