News & Events-Resilience essay success for Frazer-Nash’s Ryan Meeks

Frazer-Nash's human factors expert, Ryan Meeks, has been awarded third place in the 2015 Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) Resilience Essay Prize.

Ryan's essay, titled 'Stemming the "ripple effect" on Insider Threat attacks on connected systems towards 2050' was shortlisted in the category 'A resilient critical national infrastructure (CNI) in the age of the "internet of things"'.

Ryan was presented with his prize at the RUSI Resilience Conference on Monday 26 October, and attended the RUSI Speaker Dinner on the same evening.

Resilience is a key growth area for Frazer-Nash, which is attending the conference to showcase the services it offers, which help clients prepare for, and respond effectively to, a crisis or issue.

Ryan's research, on which his RUSI essay is based, looks at the complex socio-cultural, environmental and psychological factors involved in Insider Attacks, and suggests tactics that organisations can use to combat them. His findings have been very well-received and have featured in a number of publications and events, including a presentation at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition in September 2015.
