Cyber Security for the Amateur Radio Operator

By

Dr. Lawrence Dobranski, VA3IQ, P.Eng.

As amateur radio operators, we tend to be at the forefront of communications and information technology.  This is even more true for those of us that are QRV on 6 meters and up.  We live in a period of disruptive technology highlighted by the Internet, social media, and web-enabled technologies.  Adopting these new technologies will expose us to malicious actors seeking to exploit us for money, personal, and political gain.  How can we, as amateur radio operators, continue to enjoy our hobby yet have an acceptable level of risk so that our information and capabilities are not exposed to risks we do not accept.

This presentation will examine cyber security from the amateur radio perspective.    Cybersecurity is not just about confidentiality but also about integrity and availability.  What are the threats to which we are exposed, what risks are attributable to them, and how can they be mitigated to an acceptable level?

Dr. Lawrence G. Dobranski, VA3IQ, P.Eng., has worked in cyber security and communications infrastructure engineering for almost 40 years.  He is licensed to provide professional engineering services to the public in BC, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario.  His scope of practice focuses on Operational and Platform Technologies for communications and radar systems.  He has been a licensed amateur radio operator for over thirty years, currently assembling a rover to be QRV from 50 MHz to 10 GHz -- a never ending journey.  He is the Vice President of the West Carleton Amateur Radio Club in Ottawa.
