Information Security and Privacy
Concern for the privacy of personal and other sensitive information is recognised as the most serious impediment to our reaping the benefits promised by the Internet and the Information Economy. This is particularly true in the areas of healthcare and financial services.
The Information Security and Privacy research team are addressing the problem of ensuring the privacy of sensitive information when it is in electronic form – such as on the Internet or in the context of Web Services – by building tools which apply and enforce role-based access to electronic information stores.
