Summary

This programme aims to develop research-based practice amongst professionals currently working within the Information Security area. As a result of the rapid growth in both the availability of global information structures (e.g. the Internet) and the number of users, information security professionals are facing major challenges providing services that are accessible yet safe. Keeping business channels flexible and easy to use whilst guarding against the e-criminal is an on-going project.

Our information Security research was rated world-leading during the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. We continually work towards the design of solutions to detect, prevent and analyse cyber security attacks. Many of our staff are at the forefront of the battle against hackers and criminals who relentlessly target our digital society. The near future may favour criminals even more as the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to expand possible avenues of attack.

Our academic team is involved in major European research projects, including the enhancement of cyber security awareness, the crucial field of software security for mobile devices and cloud computing.
