Research Group: CyberSecurity
In an increasingly uncertain world, the need for the security of citizens, data and critical infrastructure is a major concern. A parallel but not unrelated body of research acknowledges safety needs requiring rigorous engineering, fail-proof mechanisms and protection systems to ensure a dependable design and reliable operation. The Cyber Security Group at the Centre for Mobility and Transport (CMT) at Coventry University is a team of multi-disciplinary researchers addressing issues of systems security for automotive, rail and connected infrastructure. Over the past 6 years, the group has been involved in a number of projects including:
Automotive cybersecurity poses a major challenge to connected and autonomous vehicles. This course addresses the wider challenge of increasing digital and software components on connected platforms and focusses specifically on threat intelligence and engineering aspects of automotive systems. Issues of policy and personal data are also explored.
This course is for engineers, scientists and consultants with an interest in cybersecurity of connected and autonomous vehicles; automotive manufacturers, electronics designers and suppliers, components manufacturers and software tool developers; and policy makers, academics and researchers.
