University of Wales, Newport
Information Security should be another human right. It should be offered freely and to every member of the public. Through my involvement in the e-Crime Steering Group I will be giving advice on how to effectively and proactively understand, analyze and tackle e-crime. I aim to see a better and safer Wales where organizations will be able to conduct their online business as securely as possible. I aim to see Wales setting the state of the art in tackling e-Crime and making the cyber-world a safer place for everyone.
The University of Wales, Newport is recognizing the importance of understanding the nature of the different types of e-Crime and raising the awareness of the public through education. We have invested a fair amount of resources developing our capabilities of collecting, analyzing and understanding threat data. We try to understand not only e-Crime, but also the people behind it: the cyber-criminals and the victims. We aim to be able to offer advice on the threat agents that are active in the Welsh cyber-space, and we are proud to be able to do so through the e-Crime Steering Group.
