Cyber Security

The Cybersecurity strategic theme of the School of Engineering and Information Technology supports the education of the next generation of cyber security professionals and researchers, whilst supporting research into new paradigms of cybersecurity practise.

Within this theme, we conduct teaching and research in the fields of:

  • Complex Systems Security – researching and developing security and resilience for complex networks and systems.
  • Cyber War, Peace & Policy – analysing transformations in international and national security policy, strategy and diplomacy in response to the cyber age.
  • Offensive Security – investigating proactive and adversarial approaches to protecting computer systems, networks and individuals from attacks.
  • Useable Security and Value-Sensitive Design – designing and developing user-centered, value-sensitive security and Defence technologies.
  • Cyber-physical systems – analysis and design of secure and resilient data acquisition, monitoring and control systems for critical infrastructure, featuring integration between physical and computational components of the system.

In conjunction with UNSW Canberra Cyber, our School offers undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in the Cybersecurity domain.
