The Cyber research group brings a much-needed global research focus and capacity to examine UK and international strategic responses to cyber. It leverages the broader experience of RUSI staff and Associate Fellows and has fostered a growing network of cyber experts from both the public and private sectors and academia.
Our cyber research agenda is structured around the following themes: the cyber threat landscape; defence and resilience; legislation and regulation; cyber education, awareness and behaviour; and the cyber ecosystem. The team focuses on different aspects of these themes, depending upon policy priorities at any given time.
We take what can sometimes be a complex and technical subject and aim to communicate it in plain language for non-technical audiences. Our programme informs and enriches policy approaches to cyber-related challenges by developing a strong evidence base that is available to policymakers and practitioners.
Current research projects examine future UK cyber strategy; the cyber risk generated by the globalisation of technology; tackling cyber fraud; cyber insurance; ransomware; and the development of offensive cyber capabilities.
