The Offensive Cyber Working Group (OCWG) is an academia-led initiative to bring together experts from across academia to examine the conceptual, policy and practical implications of offensive cyber activity in the current UK landscape. The first event of the OCWG was a scoping workshop to outline the Group’s key priorities, with community discussions leading towards future research themes and projects. See Scoping Workshop for more details.

Subsequent work will explore themes and to coordinate appropriate activity streams. Relevant event details and materials will be found on the OCWG website and through updates via OCWG on Twitter. The goal is to generate grounded, informed, timely, and relevant advice for policy and to develop an expert community on offensive cyber activity. This may include inviting participants from government, industry and beyond. The Group will facilitate a space in which a range of expert stakeholders can contribute to this interdisciplinary discussion.
