We discuss communication challenges and pipeline problems in cyber security.
This week we are joined by our CDT Director, an Industry Representative from our Advisory Board, and an CDT14 Graduate! We discuss how the challenges of interdisciplinary work translate from research to the cyber security sector, and chat about the current skills gap.
Andrew Martin, Professor of Systems Security at the University of Oxford, is the Founder and Director of the CDT. His research interests focus on distributed systems and applications of Trusted Computing technologies (particularly in cloud, mobile, and embedded applications - embodied now in the concept of the Internet of Things).
Dr Louise Axon, Research Associate in Cyber Security within the Cyber Analytics group at Oxford, took part in the CDT as part of the 2014 cohort. Her research interests include risk and cyber-insurance; security of distributed-ledger technologies; and cybersecurity capacity building.
