Utilisation of the Cyber Security Challenge for Learning within the South African Perspective

Abstract:

Globally, cyber security is one of the fastest growing fields—where the number of cyber warfare and jobs for cyber defense professionals far outpaces the number of available professionals. Industry and government professionals in South Africa who have seen and experienced these gaps are involved in various initiatives to support cyber security education. One such initiative is the annual Cyber Security Challenge, with the main aim to introduce students to the real-world applications of cyber security, to motivate them to consider a career path in this industry, and to expose them to cyber warfare and defence as career options.

Optimal Sensor Placement in the Network Structure from a Defence Point of View

Abstract:

This article presents a method for optimising sensor placement in a general network topology. Sensor placement is calculated by balancing maximised closeness to the monitored nodes with sensor location distribution for protection. The model serves cyber defence planning and critical infrastructure defence. It uses node and link weights as parameters to describe information quantity, data importance to a defender, and criticality to the network operator. General network analysis, together with a penalty factor for describing distributed defence requirements, underpins the methodology. The Sprint operator network in the USA is used as an example to demonstrate the methodology.
