Our cyber security research is multi-disciplinary and puts the person at the heart of security decisions. We work across a wide variety of sectors to help businesses, other organisations and individuals to gain an understanding of cyber threats, how to counter them, embed cyber security practices and establish a cyber security culture to help support and protect the UK economy.
The centre forms the heart of the institute's Cyber Security Theme. It is formed from a group of researchers drawn from across campus who have an active research profile in cyber and cyber-related areas. The broader, institute research theme in cyber security also includes those university staff who have an in interest in cyber security and related work, but have yet to accumulate a core body of work in this area.
Our research work within the centre can be coarsely grouped into four key areas:
- Cyber Security Behaviours.
- Sense-Making of Large, Heterogeneous Information Sources.
- Securing Mobile and Embedded Infrastructures.
- Developing New Mechanisms to Increase Network Resilience and Secure Communications.
