Cyber espionage is an increasingly pertinent topic of attention in UK news, amongst security researchers, and within intelligence communities. Historically, spaces like Bletchley Park have framed intelligence and counterintelligence operations as interdisciplinary activities, and this is a perspective that was echoed by our cyber espionage conference at University of Oxford.

The 5th annual conference was organised and run by a committee of Oxford and Royal Holloway doctoral researchers studying at EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training, all of whom come from different discipline backgrounds, but were inspired to come together with the aim of contributing to a better cyber security future for the UK.

As adversaries with evolving technological toolkits continue to mount novel attacks to undermine UK's security, surveying current cyber espionage capabilities has potentially never been more pressing.

This report on the event summarises each speaker’s conference presentation*, and is intended to contribute to a discussion about UK security and also the international discussion on how cyber security and cyber espionage will advance in the 21st century.
