                Tuesday 4 May 1999
                2.30 pm

                Information Warfare, Cyber Terrorism and
                Computer Crime, Threats and Defences


                Dr Ralph Benjamin

Consultant and Visiting Professor at Imperial College.  Dr. Benjamin's
earlier positions have been as Director and Chief Scientist, Admiralty
Underwater-Weapons Establishment, Superintendent Director and Chief
Scientist, GCHQ and Head of Communications Techniques and
Networks,Nato Supreme HQ.


The talk will briefly consider some of the evidence that there is a
real problem, and how it could affect  various aspects of the fabric
of the nation. It will then indicate the essential commonalities
between Information Warfare and Computer Crime - and intermediate
scenarios - particularly as regards interconnected systems serving
significant operations.  It will outline the types of threat, their
nature and their trends.  The main part of the talk will then deal
with the various architectural and other technical, cryptographic,
procedural and administrative actions, which jointly can hopefully
contain the threat, and it will indicate how their relative priorities
might be determined. Conclusions will summarise the nature of the
threat and defences and the action required.


The lecture will be in room 831, 8th Floor, Claremont Tower, Tea and
biscuits will be served in the Common Room (Room 924) after the talk.
