Centre for Cyber Security Sciences (CCySS)
The Centre for Cyber Security Sciences (CCySS) was created in early 2011. It draws together long-established research groups within the University from the School of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, the School of Informatics and Cass Business School.
The Centre focuses its work in three critical areas. These are:
- Impact of cyber security on business; comprising information risk governance, economics of security, information risk decisions
- Security of Internet, World-Wide-Web and Cloud and a deep analysis of attacks
- The evaluation and communication of the dependability and trustworthiness of complex socio-technical systems, using formal, rigorous and quantitative methods and associated evidence
The Centre is distinctive through the combination of expertise in reliability, safety and security with that in audit and risk management.
CCySS was formally launched on 17 April 2012 at the 40th Edwards Lecture with the Worshipful Company of Scientific Instrument Makers. The lecture by Professor David Stupples was on 'Breaking Enigma and the legacy of Alan Turing in code breaking: celebrating the Alan Turing Centenary in 2012'.
