DCU are hosting the event and Professor of Digital Business at DCU Business School Theo Lynn said:


“CyberScience 2021 comes at a timely juncture in Irish life with the recent cyberattack on the HSE. We are fortunate to have some of the leading thinkers speaking at the event including Professor Ross Anderson of the Cambridge Cybercrime Centre. Professor Andserson is one of the founders of the security economics discipline and a winner of the Lovelace Medal, the UK’s top award in computing. In light of the December attack on the US electricity grid, Professor Anderson’s keynote should be timely, relevant, and serve as a warning for Irish decisionmakers.”


Key themes that will be covered during the five-day event include: Cyber Situational Awareness for transparent and trustworthy artificial intelligence; advancing cyber security education in a post-COVID world; coexisting AI and blockchain applications; AI-enabled social media innovative information operation.


The event will feature a total of six keynote speakers, a Women in Technology panel session and a fireside chat with Prof Ross Anderson, Professor of Security Engineering at Cambridge University and head of the Cambridge Cybercrime Centre, which collects and analyses data about online wickedness.
