SPRITE+ worked with the PETRAS National Centre of Excellence for IoT Systems Cybersecurity to host an online workshop for Early Career Researchers. We were delighted to welcome 35 attendees from across the SPRITE+ and PETRAS networks.
The workshop focussed on hints and tips for successful stakeholder engagement, and covered key topics such as what academic researchers should emphasise and how research should be packaged when contacting or pitching to non-academic partners. We hosted an impressive line up of presenters representing a diverse set of industries and sectors followed by a Q&A panel discussion in which our speakers shared their advice. We are pleased to share the outputs from this session.
Since graduating with a degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Peter’s career has been inextricably linked with both: the delivery of industrial control and instrumentation systems across the Oil and Gas, Power, Process, Water and Aerospace industries; as well as the management of power and process facilities and companies.
Until 2017 Peter worked as a specialist consultant providing expertise in support of C&I (control and instrumentation) and safety critical technologies – a role that expanded in the late 1990’s to include Operational Technology (OT) security.
Peter holds an MBA and a master’s degree in Information Security (specialising in industrial control systems) and now works for Yorkshire Water as their Cyber-Physical Security Manager – a role that recognises the distinction between traditional Information Security and the needs of protecting cyber physical equipment from cyber-attack.
