An increase in the prevalence of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and wireless networks in critical infrastructure and other complex systems, such as cyber-physical systems and industrial IoT (IIoT), broadens the number of vectors available to malicious actors and makes systems more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. 

Our Complex Systems Security research develops novel approaches to software-intensive system cyber security and resiliency, vulnerability discovery and analytics of abnormal data that may affect industrial control systems that operate in critical infrastructure. Our researchers utilise advanced modelling and experimentation techniques to simulate attacks to improve risk identification, intrusion detection, privacy preservation, and to enhance business system processes and responses to cyber incursions.
