Abstract
Cyberspace is best understood as a complex global ecosystem subject to technical and social drivers. The research carried out by this study suggests that current approaches to cyber security are ill suited to detecting or anticipating threats, which increasingly rely on hybrid socio-technical vectors. Securing national cyberspace requires a paradigm shift toward a common operating picture (COP) of cyberspace. The project undertook research and experimental work along several axes critical to establishing a common operating picture of cyberspace. The principal outputs are grouped under the following three categories: i) research into the practical and ethical dimensions of a behaviour based model of detecting and anticipating cyber threats; ii) a reference architecture for implementing the objectives of the national cyber security strategy; and, iii) testing and validating methodological approaches to detecting advanced cyber threats on the basis of “live” data obtained from operational sources that had been stripped of Personal Identifiable Information.
