Secure and Resilient Systems, School of Computing

Our research directly contributes to creating modern information systems, networks and infrastructures. These are dependable and secure in all aspects.

As a group of around 40 people our research focusses on cyber security and computer systems resilience. We are part of the NCSC Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security at Newcastle University.

Cyber security depends on people, as well as systems, so our work spans many fields. We work with psychologists, civil engineers, mathematicians, industry partners and users of systems. We discover new attacks, invent technologies and investigate human factors.

Our research is of interest to a wider audience and can gain substantial media coverage. Our previous research has been covered by national and international media such as the Gaurdian, BBC, Wall Street Journal, etc.

We publish our research in internationally leading conferences, such as the Computer and Communications Security Conference, and attend these annually. 

Our research receives funding from UK Research Councils, NCSC, NSA, EU and various industry partners such as ARM, Siemens, EMVCo, Atom Bank, Siemens Rail Automation, SYSTRA, Network Rail, W3C, and Mozilla.  

We teach an MSc in Computer Security and Resilience  and a BSC in Computer Science (Cyber Security and Resilience). We also have an online MOOC to give you an idea of our topics of interest.  Subscribe to our Blog, Security upon Tyne, for latest news.
