SMU and University of Surrey secure grant for cybersecurity research


Singapore. – “A team of cybersecurity experts from Singapore Management University (SMU) and University of Surrey has received 2-year funding from UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and Singapore’s National Research Foundation (NRF) to undertake research on Computational Modelling and Automatic Non-intrusive Detection Of Human Behavior-based Insecurity.
It was among the six new joint research projects selected under the inaugural Singapore-UK Joint Grant Call for Cybersecurity Research which was launched in May 2015 with the objectives of strengthening knowledge and capabilities in cybersecurity, as well as fostering closer collaboration in cybersecurity research between researchers from Singapore and UK.
The SMU-University of Surrey project aims to prove that human behaviour related insecurities in cyber security can be detected automatically, by applying human cognitive models. The project will apply human understanding and thought process in order to model and simulate humans involved in security systems. This will then support automated detection by developing general-purpose computational framework, with supporting software tools.”
