Trust, Identity, Privacy and Security in the Digital Economy Workshop

8 June 2017 | Central Bristol

10.00am – 4.00pm

The Research Councils UK Digital Economy Theme and the Cybersecurity strand of PaCCS would like to build a picture of the research challenges and opportunities in establishing Trust, Identity, Privacy and Security (TIPS) in a digital economy.

The one day workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to engage in discussion, identify research challenges and initiate new collaborative working partnerships. The outputs of this workshop will be used to develop the scope of a targeted call for research projects, which will be published in summer 2017.

There will be a pre-workshop activity for delegates to complete online, which will help to frame our discussions on the day. A workshop report will also be produced and published on the website following the event, to inform the wider community and feed into future research council strategy regarding TIPS.

Objectives of the workshop

The principal objectives of the workshop are to:

  • Establish the main research challenges and opportunities in the area of TIPS
  • Discuss the current TIPS capabilities in the UK and pinpoint any gaps
  • Generate output that will inform future Research Council strategy concerning TIPS
