The Security Reading Group (SRG)

About

The Security Reading Group (SRG) is a cybersecurity focused reading group at the School of Computer Science and Engineering of the University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney). Founded by Arash Shaghaghi and Ali Dorri in September 2018, SRG is an interest group functioning under the umbrella of the Cybersecurity and Privacy Laboratory (CySPri). SRG is actively supported by Prof. Sanjay Jha and A/Prof. Salil Kanhere.

Mission

SRG aims to serve four primary goals:
1) We aim to promote a community of UNSW students interested in the field of cybersecurity.
2) We work to foster informal and informative discussion with experts in different areas of cybersecurity with the goal of promoting collaborations and facilitating knowledge sharing.
3) We create mentoring and networking opportunities for students who wish to enter the field.
4) Providing a platform and incentives for SRG members to continue engagement with SRG after graduation.
With the aforementioned goals in mind, in phase 1, SRG plans to organize two main types of events including weekly reading group meetings, and informal lunch discussions with invited guests both from academia and industry. These events are planned in such a way to give participants the chance to engage in lively debates about different areas of cybersecurity.

Current Status

Currently, SRG is composed of passionate and enthusiastic P.hD. Scholars, postdocs, and academics whose research focus falls under the domain of cybersecurity. Each week one of the SRG members presents an interesting research work followed by a thorough discussion among the participants. When and where possible, light refreshments are provided during SRG sessions.
SRG has been running on a weekly basis from early September 2018.
