Dr. Lior Tabansky
Head of Research Development, Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center, Tel Aviv University
Dr. Lior Tabansky offers a unique cybersecurity grasp, combining a Political Science Ph.D., business experience in formulating cyber strategies, and 15 years of IT-pro work. Dr. Tabansky is the Head of Research Development of Tel Aviv University’s Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center, where he leads two research projects:
1. PROGRESS: Promoting Global Cyber Resilience for Sectors and Societies.
Leveraging the science of networks and complex socio-technical systems, the new Cyber-Capability Maturity Model analyses a sector of the economy as a whole. Moreover, the expert-led assessment results in actionable Progression Paths tailored for the sector. Large-scale sustainable development projects adopt the PROGRESS model for cross-border Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP.)
2. Hostile Influence Operations via Social Media: evidence from Western-Russian encounters. The research focuses on the gaps in assessing the presumed effects on behavior.
Lior’s doctoral dissertation uncovered the failed peacetime defense adaptation, which exposed nations to cyberattacks on strategic homeland targets.
“Cybersecurity in Israel,” Lior’s 2015 book co-authored with Professor Isaac Ben-Israel, is the first comprehensive “insider” account of decades of Israeli cyber policy and its origins.
