CREST is at the forefront of the changing cyber security threat landscape
The centre recognises the growing need to improve cyber security through a focus on resilience and multi-disciplinary approaches. Our researchers represent a breath of expertise including computer science, information systems, business, law, criminology, policy, education, and communications. We work with government and industry partners to address the impact of cyber harms on people, organisations, and communities.
Advancing cyber security technologies
Our research concentrates on developing innovative cyber security technologies for high-assurance cyber defence, detection, mitigation, and response to enable cyber resilience at speed and scale.
Securing data and infrastructure
This area focuses on developing methods and frameworks for the secure use, storage, and communication of data, developing trustworthy software and protecting infrastructure.
Promoting cybersafe behaviours
Research in this area operates at the behavioural level to understand the mechanisms through which interactions between users and systems can deliver negative or positive outcomes for cyber security and resilience.
Disrupting cyber harms
This research focuses specifically on identifying and disrupting the diverse range of threat actors involved in diverse cyber harms – including individual criminals, groups, and states – and their activities, as well as facilitating cooperation amongst those responsible for preventing and responding to such harms.
Collaborate with us
CREST engages with industry and government through collaborative research projects that have real-world impact, and our HDR Program prepares candidates to become tomorrow’s leaders in cyber security.
