What is our world today?

Why is this more
than traditional
information
thinking?


Are we going down an evolutionary dead
-
end?


Are we the only people in the know?


Are we at the church of cryptography…


Are we….

This is the
traditional IA
Landscape


what does it not show?

National

Security

Critical National

Infrastructure

Wider Public

Sector

UK Economy/

Society

Does this reveal any more…

Wealth

Consumption

Wealth Creation

National

Security

Critical National

Infrastructure

Wider Public

Sector

UK Economy/Society

Knowledge/

Information/

Data

Highly

Sensitive

Privacy

What else have you
heard?


The current
thinking
is dead!


There is a huge variety of situations out
there…


Silo’d

World… e.g. in the Security World
-

basics
are still not followed… e.g.
awareness training…


Control centric universe…

Where actually are we?


Information centric existence…


Different geopolitical picture…


‘Internet of Things’…


‘Consumerisation’ of IT or ICT (whichever
is preferred?)


Total 21
st

century reliance…


So what?

Internet of Things…

Panarchy… yes ecology other
disciplines… integrated way…

Gunderson L and
Holling

C S,(2001),

Panarchy: Understanding Transformations in

Systems of Humans and Nature

What levels are we dealing…

Panarchy examples…

Ecosystems… cycles!

So why relevant to cyber
-
security?


This is today’s world… 21
st

century one…


Is this a turning point?


Is it a tipping point?


Are we at a precipice



Variety…. Complex system multiplier!


NO!!!! We traverse to the bridge &
beyond…

What is
Cyber
-
sûréte

concept?

Cyber
-
sûréte

which is seen as ‘combining
both the trusts necessary for assurance
and the controls and rules for safety’. This
is an important distinction to Cyber
-
security. As significantly, Cyber
-
sûréte

enables both a safe
-
to
-
fail ecology (in
which learning and testing can take place


and so adaptation) with a fail
-
safe
existential control environment (as in a
nuclear power plant).


Internet of Things…

Information Lodestone…



possibly…




The Theory of the
Integration of Everything!

What is the
Information
Lodestone?



Understanding…


Protecting…


Sustaining…


Nurturing…



Information Economy
and Society in the 21
st

century


Cyber
-
Sûréte


Why has the
Lodestone
Expanded?


Physical


Infrastructure


Economic


Societal


Virtual/Cognitive…



Bottom
-
Up…


Or actually 720 deg…


Why has the
Lodestone
Expanded
into a 3
rd

dimension?


Horizon Scanning


Future Forecasting


Focused Observation
& Timely Insight


Current Reality



Linear/Non
-
Linear


Or actually 720 deg…

Is the
Lodestone
actually 720
o
?

Information Lodestone
Concept and Model of
Operation


Strands
through an information
ecosystem



Bottom
-
Up…


Or actually 720 deg…

Is the
Lodestone
working in
720
o
?

Applying integrated
thinking to a strand
across several aspects
and forecast
groupings…

Where do we go next?


The framework & concept
to be written up…


Common Initiative
… on
what is actually out
there…


Full
In
-
Lode Ltd is
operational…


Future is just that…
dynamic, organic &
emergent world… 21
st

century journey for all…

Conclusion…


The introduction of concepts for the
Information
Lodestone

and the
Information Keystone
.


Consideration of
Cyber
-
Sûréte

as opposed to Cyber
-
Security; the
Cyber
-
scape

as opposed to Cyber
-
space;
the
Interspace

as well as the Battlespace.


Variety

as a necessary system multiplier in complex
ecologies; necessary to both influence and control.


Trust

as the obverse of
Risk
, set within wider more
inclusive concepts.


The future is likely to be
uncertain; unstable
;
ubiquitous

and
unpredictable

(the four Us).


Thanks for listening…
