Electronic information now plays a vital role in almost every aspect of our daily lives. So the need for a secure and trustworthy online infrastructure is more important than ever. without it, not only the growth of the internet but our personal interactions and the economy itself could be at risk.
From a security perspective, finance is one of the most challenging business sectors. You need the highest levels of confidentiality and assurance. You also need risk mitigation and analysis models to cope with a fast, and ever-changing, environment.
We collaborate closely with financial sector and law enforcement professionals to address these issues. Projects have included developing an investigatory framework (with the FSA and Northumbria Police) and working with the Scottish Police to create a secure inter-domain information sharing architecture.
Our researchers are also building new high security e-Health systems based on cloud computing. This recent collaboration with both Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and Microsoft plc has led to the creation of a next generation healthcare infrastructure, with increased levels of human and digital trust.
