Getting “cyber organized”: Information overload and collaborative action in a small scale economy

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractOther research output

Risks to cyber infrastructure are rising and becoming ever more
complex. In that respect, situational awareness, knowledge and understanding
are key factors when dealing with cyber threats. Information Technology
managers and practitioners are faced with enormous computer-processed data
coming in at ever increasing speed. IT-related overload impacts the associated
ability to process this information safely and efficiently. Altogether, it is a big
challenge for IT managers to conduct a dedicated cyber defense agenda. In most cases the overload occurs because of limitations in time or human processing capacity, or defective team communication. This is exacerbated in a small-scale economy where resources are often very limited. While financial consequences may not seem substantial to the world, for an island it may be economically devastating. This research in progress focuses on collaboration between private and public sectors to implement a resilient national cyber defense agenda.
