The jointly hosted Technology Event by NCSC and High Assurance UK (HAUK) Trade Association, was attended by Airbus CyberSecurity on 20th September 2017
The interactive and thought provoking sessions tackled challenges facing product and service assurance in today’s dynamic, interconnected and complex environments, which proved a valuable experience for all.
After scene setting by Dr Paul Thorlby (QinetiQ) and Jacqui Chard (NCSC), Mike St John Green presided as ‘judge’ for a mock “court of enquiry” initially centred on autonomous vehicle safety. The setting was designed to illuminate the issues and opportunities that the UK’s High Assurance sector faces and the benefits of interdisciplinary collaboration. A variety of ‘expert witnesses’ from across Government, Industry and Academia were called to give evidence through three acts which helped the audience to build a picture of the challenges and offer the judge views to assist his findings and summing up.
The event received broad sector representations including: law, insurance, government regulators, vendors, academia and consumers. Dr Bernard Parsons, the HAUK Chairman, commented: “The effort applied to organising this event in terms of content, format and participants has been extremely valuable. The event has progressed conversations that are of significance to vendors, regulators and consumers related to the assurance of evolving and complex environments. We look forward to sharing more details on the sessions’ outputs”.
