Cybersecurity Matricies Workshop

  • Georgia State University Buckhead Center room 1212 Tower Place 200 3348 Peachtree Rd. NE Atlanta, GA, 30326 United States (map)

Governmental agencies, private corporations, and individuals around the globe employ a wide range of technical tools and security policies in effort to reduce their probability of becoming victims of cybercrime. Nevertheless, due to the relative scarcity of rigorous evidence regarding the effectiveness of security tools and policies in preventing and mitigating cybercrime incidents,  the cybersecurity community is still in the dark regarding the centrality of different policies and tools to their organizations security posture. One of the underlying reasons behind the scarcity of empirical research in this area is the absence of universally accepted measurement metrics, that allow organizations with practical tools for assessing the effectiveness of security controls and policies. The goal of this workshop is to bring together cybersecurity practitioners, academics and, policy makers in effort to develop a list of cybersecurity matrices that could be used by the industry when developing assessments of cybersecurity interventions. The workshop organizers will work toward dissemination and publications of the list of agreed upon cybersecurity matrices in both academia and industry

Target audience and participants:

cybersecurity experts from both academia and the industry, CISO’s in large and mid-size private and public organizations, cybersecurity policy analysts in governmental agencies and law enforcement agencies
