Cybersecurity

SPECIALIST AREA LEADERS: Jim Clarke and Paul Malone

For more than a decade, the TSSG has been working in projects related to cybersecurity, including network and communications security, data and information privacy and trust management topics, in both ICT and policy – related aspects. While this work has often been considered cross-cutting to other ICT domains within our larger scale research and innovation action projects, the TSSG has also worked on dedicated cybersecurity related projects throughout the last 15 years. Another area of considerable expertise built up in TSSG is international cooperation (both bi-lateral and multi-lateral activities) directly in relation to cybersecurity, with a large number of projects involving international partners (e.g. USA, Canada, Australia, Japan, India, Brazil, South Africa, etc.) collaborating on many areas together to improve cross border expertise in relation to enhancing cybersecurity knowledge. TSSG also has leveraged their cybersecurity expertise across several vertical sectors, including network management (including 5G), media, transport, and health sectors, amongst others.
