Legalities Of Cyber Deception Workshop – 20 July 2021 LONDON

The National Cyber Deception Laboratory (NCDL) is holding an in-person one-day workshop, at a central London venue, on 20th July 2021. The aim of this workshop is to provide an opportunity to explore the legal considerations for planning and undertaking cyber deception activities as part of a cyber defence strategy.

Operating under Chatham House rules, the workshop will draw from a small community of expert practitioners. The group will include representatives from the military and civilian government cyber security practitioners; legal and policy advisers; technical experts and other subject matter experts in the fields of cyber security and law. During the day, relevant legal issues will be explored through a range of illustrative scenarios relating to the concepts at the heart of cyber deception. These scenarios will provide a vehicle for discussion to identify the key issues that will need to be addressed in real-world practice.

Following the workshop, a short summary output of the day will be produced identifying the key technical and legal hurdles to address when enacting cyber deception.

The day will run from approximately 0930 until 1630, with lunch and refreshments provided throughout.

Places are limited, but we would be particularly keen to hear from individuals who would be interested in contributing and participating at this in-person event in London. In particular, we are looking for individuals who have operational experience of using cyber deception techniques in defence of a network and those with experience of the legal factors that would need to be considered. Should you feel that you have relevant experience and would be interested in participating in this NCDL workshop, please drop us an email at

Please include details of your subject matter experience and previous experience or any other factors that you think are relevant.  Whilst we only have a few places available for this workshop, we will be running a series of future events (both in-person and virtually) that will offer more opportunities to get involved with the NCDL.


We look forward to hearing from you.
