The Security Research Group is formed from Computer Scientists within SCC. We are also a group of researchers actively engaged with our Cyber Security Research Centre which is an NCSC/EPSRC Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research (ACE-CSR).
For more details of the research work our Cyber Security Research Centre undertakes and who is involved from across the university please visit the website.
Our Research Focus
Our research focus areas are Cyber-Physical Socio-Technical Systems Security and Resilience, Large Scale Network Security and Resilience, Cyber Security Risk Management in Complex Socio-Technical Systems and the Design of Secure and Resilient Distributed and Cloud-Based Platforms. We develop new experimental approaches, both practical and theoretical, to understand the complex interactions within Systems of Socio-Technical Systems (SoSTS). We focus on the long term underlying principles and challenges driving security issues in SoSTS. We provide a core security-focused grouping within the university’s Cyber Security Research Centre (CSRC), alongside other research groups in SCC and other departments.
