We are the Digital Forensics and Information Security Research Cluster.
We are a group of researchers that have each unique research interests which altogether combined covers the breath and depth of cybersecurity research disciplines.
Our diverse team works collaboratively on many research projects and discharge community service responsibilities across board. Based on each member’s specific specialisations, they can spearhead and lead a research direction that speaks to their area of interest. Other team members can then join in to support the cause as their passion and expertise dictates.
Our diverse research portfolio covers many cross cutting fields in cybersecurity. Some of the key aspects hovers from User Experience Security, IoT & AI security, Critical Infrastructure and Cloud computing security, Digital Forensics and Child Online Protection
We engage with local and International partners to bring awareness on the ever growing cyber threats. Through workshops and the annual cyber security competitions, we believe these are some ways of creating awareness
Most of our research team members are full time lecturers and part and parcel of the team that are involved in the design and implementation of the cybersecurity curriculum from Undergraduate to Postgraduate levels.
By being lifelong learners ourselves, we believe the best way to deliver the best is by upgrading ourselves continuously, either through certifications, conventional degrees and short courses from time to time.

Active Research Projects
Leveraging IoT and AI research, we focus on research that can be applied to smart. homes, smart offices, smart grids, smart cities and smart health.
User Experience (UX) Security
By focusing on end-users, from their behavioural traits and how they interact with their favourite everyday devices, we focus on how we can bring awareness of the loopholes that capitalises the human link to the security chain.
Critical Infrastructure Security
From research that explores zero day attacks to any research that address that likely dangers of SCADA systems, we have a research arm to that.
Cloud Computing Security
Covering various application domains that harnesses the power of cloud computing, we have research interests in that direction and this is where we cover educational platforms such as e-Learning security.
