CySPri Lab at UNSW within the Faculty of Engineering focusses on computer and communication security research. This lab conducts research funded via government, such as ARC, and collaborates with a number of industry partners.
Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. In a computing context, the term security implies cybersecurity. Ensuring cybersecurity requires coordinated efforts throughout an information system. Elements of cybersecurity include:
- Application security
- Information security
- Network security
- Disaster recovery/business continuity planning
- End-user education.
A broad aim of the CySPri Lab is to conduct leading edge research focused on systems aspect of CyberSecurity, PRivacy and trust (software, hardware and networking) to be benefit of end users and organisations. The lab will also foster strong collaboration between UNSW, industry and Government, disseminating local and international research on ICT systems security, privacy, and trustworthiness to the Australian community, including industry, government, and the research sector.
