Gil Baram – Cyber Security Research
I study cyber conflict and covert actions and my dissertation focuses on national strategies and attribution during cyber attacks.
Gil Baram is the Head of research at the Yuval Ne’eman workshop for science, technology and security, and a research fellow at the Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center (ICRC), Tel Aviv University.
Gil is a Ph.D. candidate at the Tel Aviv University school of Politics and International Relations, specializing in cyber conflicts and national security. Currently she is an adjunct fellow at the Centre of Excellence for National Security (CENS), Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
Her current research agenda focuses on national decision making during cyber conflicts. She explores the reasons why – despite the fact that cyberattacks are covert actions in nature, and therefore can be hidden or denied – in many cases countries choose to reveal the attack and “go public” about it. In her research, Gil is developing a new conceptual-theoretical framework and is examining it by combining qualitative and quantitative research methods.
Gil holds an M.A in Security Studies from Tel-Aviv University (Magna Cum Laude).
Gil’s research was presented at conferences such as CyCon and Cyber Week. Her work has been published in journals such as Comparative Strategy, Cyber Security: A Peer-Reviewed Journal, Middle East Quarterly, Foreign Affairs, Military and Strategic Affairs, Maa’rachot, Acta Astronautica and more.
