This programme aims to develop research-based practice amongst professionals currently working within the Information Security area. As a result of the rapid growth in both the availability of global information structures (e.g. the Internet) and the number of users, information security professionals are facing major challenges providing services that are accessible yet safe. Keeping business channels flexible and easy to use whilst guarding against the e-criminal is an on-going project.
