CSP Forums objectives include some of the following;

  1. Support Enhance collaboration between the trust and security projects, evolving the clustering activities of the projects.
  2. Demonstrate that the trust and security research programme is delivering tangible results with high potential impact.
  3. Provide greater visibility of trust and security research programme through a high-profile annual conference and a T&S research web repository portal that become recognisable brands.
  4. Increase the impact of trust and security project results by matching them with industry needs.
  5. Provide a forward, strategic perspective of the emerging and developing trust and security issues, challenges, requirements, and priorities.

Frances Cleary, WIT-TSSG, the coordinator of CSP Forum presented the paper “Innovative Trust & Security Research Outputs” which highlights the effectiveness of CSP Forum on the trust and research domain. The paper addresses the need to maximise the number of innovative trust and security (T&S) research projects that impact on the marketplace and provides an insight into the research to industry process, highlighting example barriers and recommendations for improvement. The paper also gives examples of such success stories of projects coming from the T&S research domain impacting the marketplace.
