As an independent organization, CSCSS delivers a uniquely positioned and unbiased third party, globally focused, well-defined, strategic objective. We present clear cyber and cyberspace- based security goals for government and the public-private sector, leveraging on best practices, and lessons learned, and not affected by any particular point-of-view.

In the global forum, we are the only independent, multilateral, not for profit, cyberspace and security science group in operation, working to generate international strategies and scientific research that clearly articulates strategic priorities, goals, and objectives, providing unbiased intelligence reports for better decision making.

  • 2. The early 21st century has been defined by the Internet, information and our information infrastructure. Protecting information and its associated infrastructure has become as important as protecting any of our national secrets. In our digital age cyberspace and the information within it is key. In today’s hyper-connected world it plays a critical role in how we live, work, and drives our businesses. The information we create increases exponentially as does our reliance upon it. Securing and managing our information and the availability to access information securely, becomes even more important and challenging. CSCSS CENTRE FOR STRATEGIC CYBERSPACE + SECURITY SCIENCE The Centre for Strategic Cyberspace + Security Science / CSCSS as a leader in cyberspace engages with a broad variety of national-international government agencies, public-private industry, and academic institutions to counter the extensive range of threats faced in cyberspace, and to ensure information assurance, protection, and freedom. We converge and leverage unique and highly complementary skills sets along with our broad-based operational and focused architecture. This is required to take on an ever-increasing complex and dynamically changing range of issues that encompass extremely technical international, cultural, socio-economic, and cyber intelligence facets. We must think globally and cooperatively to respond to these challenges and CSCSS is the entity that will be the service model leading the field into the 21st century.

Research + Development The primary goal of the CSCSS Cyberspace Science Research + Development is to provide forward-looking, cutting-edge research and development, categorization of issues (distinguishing yet blending technology research and strategic studies), and unique laboratory facilities that allow our faculty of researchers to support our cyberspace and security research initiatives. Cyberspace Science Cyberspace science leverages the convergence of technology and natural and social sciences, furthering their shared understanding of the nature of cyberspace, both “real” and “virtual.” Applying science and cybersecurity to secure cyberspace ultimately satisfy the requirement for security design in this new environment. CSCSS, in conjunction and cooperation with world bodies is championing the blended education approach, which should begin as early as possible and aligned with STEM – having a full lifecycle, and treated as a “science”. Research and Development Coordination To promote and measure our Research and Development endeavors, CSCSS manages our R&D areas of focus and influence through: n CSCSS – Cyber Science & Technology Directorate / CSTD The Cyber Science & Technology Directorate mission is to strengthen support CSCSS, cyberspace security and cyber resiliency by promoting and coordinating funded cyberspace research and development, knowledge, innovation across CSCSS through creativity, vision and the delivery of advanced cyber technology solutions for cyberspace. n CSCSS – Office of National Laboratories / CONL National Laboratories & Research Centers CSCSS Office of National Laboratories (CONL) sustains a coordinated network of national laboratories and research universities to help deliver critical cyber research capabilities. The CONL coordinates and aligns with the CSCSS Science and Technology Directorate and CSCSS divisions to manage and synchronize activities throughout the research and development community. It coordinates the expertise of research colleges and universities to address CSCSS R&D Requirements. A Comprehensive Cyberspace Research Agenda CSCSS will further the field of diversified cyberspace / cyber conflict research by taking a comprehensive, Interdisciplinary approach to core issues surrounding the sophisticated, multi- faceted threats in cyberspace. Rogue independent, as well as, national/state actors, hacktivists, criminals, terrorist organizations pose these threats, and corporate entities attempting to leverage economic gain and benefits. CSCSS divides the potential research vectors for cyber conflict studies into (but not limited to) the following core categories: n International/National Security n Cyber Warfare + Conflict n Strategic Level Cyber Issues n Operational-Military Issues n Cyber Warfare : Role of Non-State Actors n Cyber Trends and Threats Report n Counter-Intelligence n Global Cyber Arms Control Agreements n International Cyber Law n Cyber Terrorism n Global Cyberspace Security Survey / GCSS CSCSS delivers regular forums, consortiums, web-conferences, (live and archived), on the key areas of a strong uninterrupted strategic cyberspace.

As the cybersphere becomes more evolutionary and expanding, organizations must be prepared for the challenges of providing tangible evidence of their commitment to ethical conduct in cyberspace. For CSCSS, ethical conduct and organizational responsibility are key in our strategic objectives which need to be instilled in the educational arena for the next generation of cyber-leadership. We believe in building collaborative bridges leading to long-term relationships and a level of trust that benefit all of our stakeholders, partners, the cybersphere environment, community and society. CSCSS has demonstrated endeavors to provide opportunities for government leadership to interact with the cyberspace and cybersecurity community on issues affecting national security. We believe that the key to the future of cyberspace lies in a global approach, cross-domain convergence, and shared values. We owe it to our future to ensure that freedom and liberty endure through a free and open cyberspace. LEADERSHIP. RESEARCH. DEFENCE.
