In recent years, awareness has been developed to face the challenges associated with society’s dependence on information and communication technology. Such dependency has gradually become a key feature in an interconnected and knowledge-based digital society, which consists of critical national infrastructures and essential services such as water, gas and banking. With this dependency, aggressor and criminals can make the infrastructures vulnerable and cause significant damages. Naturally, public and media attention is quickly drawn to the cases of hacking and espionage and there is continuous interest about the rapid growth of cyber-crime such as banking fraud and identity theft. In this talk, I start from introducing Queen’s University Belfast and School of Electronic, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and their available teaching programmes. Afterwards, I am going to introduce the well-established UK Innovation and Knowledge Centre CSIT and its missions of tackling cyber-security problems. Finally, I will summarise the recent research progress in my research group, related to the context of CSIT.
