I-Trace next step in WMG’s Cyber Security research partnership with smart infrastructure company Costain
Smart infrastructure company Costain have just announced that they are joining I-Trace, a part-government funded project led by Cisco and involving a consortium of partners including WMG at the University of Warwick, BT and Senseon to conduct cybersecurity trials in real-world infrastructure settings.
There has been a remarkable surge in cyber-security crime experienced during the global COVID-19 pandemic, with a particular significance between governmental policy announcements and cyber-crime campaigns. A consortium of researchers, including WMG, University of Warwick report that some days as many as 3 to 4 new cyber-attacks were being reported.
The University of Warwick is one of eight trailblazing universities to have become the first in the UK to gain recognition for their commitment to cyber security education in a new initiative from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) – a part of GCHQ.
The Cyber Security for Connected and Autonomous Mobility (CAM) has been investigated in a series of projects funded by the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) and supported by Zenzic and InnovateUK (part of UKRI). Out of Seven projects, WMG, at the University of Warwick was involved in three: Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) Cyber Resilience: a Lab2Live Observer Based Approach, ResiCAV and BeARCAT
Fraudsters regularly use a fabricated caller ID to look like they are calling from a trusted source to convince people over the phone to hand over money. The current solution, which the Federal Communications Commission is urging telecom providers in the US to adopt, requires a globally trusted authority, but such authority is difficult to manage. Researchers at the University of Warwick will find new ways to tackle this problem without requiring trusted authorities or modifying the existing telecommunication infrastructure, thanks to a grant from the EPSRC.
