Applications are invited for one (1) Research Associate position (Research Scientist Specialist Scientist C’) at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Informatics of the Cyprus University of Technology for part-time work in the field of “a Security ECONomics service platform for smart security investments and cyber insurance pricing in the beyonD 2020 netwOrking era” for the SECONDO research project under the call “Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, Research and Innovation Staff Exchanges” of the HORIZON 2020 research framework programme.
The main purpose of the SECONDO project is to optimize decisions on cyber-security investments and insurance pricing. Simply put, the program aims to support professionals seeking investment in cyber security. It is a top-of-the-line research problem, as the rapid development of cyber-attacks is expected to continue its upward course.
SECONDO therefore proposes a unique, scalable, highly interoperable platform that encompasses a comprehensive cost-driven methodology for: (i) estimating cyber risks based on a quantitative approach that focuses on both technical and non-technical aspects, (e.g. users behaviour), that influence cyber exposure; (ii) providing analysis for effective and efficient risk management by recommending optimal investments in cyber security controls; and (iii) determining the residual risks and estimating the cyber insurance premiums taking into account the insurer’s business strategy, while eliminating the information asymmetry between the insured and insurer.
The aim of the SECONDO research scientist specialist position is to combine statistical and technical knowledge to develop innovative cyber-security software and developing algorithms that will help users to make decisions on investment, risk-pricing, and pricing of insurance.
The SECONDO project involves the University of Piraeus, University of Surrey, Cyprus University of Technology, UBITECH LTD, LSTech, Cromar Insurance Brokers LTD, Fogus Innovations & Services P.C.
The Cyprus University of Technology participates in the above program with the NetSySci Lab (https://netsysci.cut.ac.cy/ ) under the umbrella of the Social Informatics Research Center (https://www.socialcomputing.eu/ ).
The successful applicants should be able to demonstrate excellent knowledge of CS theory as well as outstanding software implementation skills.
Funding prospects: The selected candidate will be funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 framework program.
The monthly gross salary of the applicant will amount to € 1,316.25. The employment will be for six (6) months with the prospective of renewal and an increase in the hours of work, and therefore the monthly salary. The successful applicant should be able to start on April 2, 2019, until the end of the project on 31 December 2022.
