Mitigating the Risks from Climate Change with Smart Cyber Security
Use of conservation technology such as drones, camera traps, acoustic monitoring and remote sensing to collect valuable climate change data is often collected by organisations who don’t fully understand cyber-attacks, threat actors, threat sources, their motives and capabilities.
According to the WWF, acoustic data can be used for ‘estimation of species occupancy, abundance, population density and community composition, monitoring spatial and temporal trends in animal behaviour and human disturbance, and calculating acoustic proxies for metrics of biodiversity’.
Camera trap data monitors our wildlife populations and remote sensing with LIDAR uses lasers to estimate the 3D structure of cliff faces. [www.wwf.org.uk]
If our climate change data is not collected, stored, processed and exchanged securely, uninformed and inappropriate decisions may be made by those in authority
Today's leaders need to make environmental and sustainability decisions about climate change based on credible data, demonstrating clear progress to citizens and the rest of the world. Our Toolkits and expertise educate the user on threat assessment, risk assessment and management, enabling them to protect the vital data they collect, store, process and exchange.
***Our Test & Evaluation Platform is now under development***
Our innovative online cyber security toolkit is designed for climate change leaders and conservationists, which combines climate change (the problem) with National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) cyber security principles (the solution) and NCSC Certified Training.
Assets: Our educational toolkit enables you to quickly understand your climate change information assets, what/who to protect them from and how to protect them by mitigating and managing the risks.
Skills: You will benefit from increased knowledge and skills which can be share with your team.
Data: The outcome from the e-learning will ensure your climate change data collected from eg drones is deliberately protected and stored on secure platforms and exchanged only with trusted partners.
Impact: This will enable accurate figures to be used to measure progress and avoid misleading incorrect information derived from corrupt data, the impact of which could detrimentally affect our biodiversity, oceans, habitats and progress.
Enable today's leaders to:
make the right decisions around climate change based on trusted and credible data sets
measure and demonstrate progress in reducing the risks from climate change; protect the planet
help the UN achieve its Sustainable Development Goals
increase cyber security skills by showing the correct way to assure vital information
reduce the UK’s cyber security skills shortage
