C.T.I stands for the Cyber Technology Institute. The Cyber Technology Institute is a newly-formed research institute in the Faculty of Technology at De Montfort University.
Though, we are not really new….
In fact, the CTI is a collaboration between three well-established research centres: the Cyber Security Centre (CSC); the Software Technology Research Laboratory (STRL) and the Context Intelligence and Interaction Research Group (CIIRG).
The Cyber Security Centre is a well-established research centre with academics and experts working in a range of security and digital forensic research areas. These include both the technical aspects of security, such as incident response, penetration testing, and industrial control system security; as well as the human factors of cyber security such as privacy issues and cyber psychology.
The Software Technology Research Laboratory is another well-established research centre with a history of developing and delivering high quality research and teaching in the field of software engineering with a focus on the study, analysis and advancement formal approaches to the specification, design and evolution of computing.
The Context Intelligence and Interaction Research Group focusses on the research areas of smart technologies and solutions using the latest emerging technologies, including advanced sensing technologies, mobile computing, Internet of Things, pervasive computing, semantic technologies, cloud computing, to support the new wave of applications, including smart homes, smart cities, intelligent transport, smart cyber-physical systems, to name but a few.
Bringing together these multi-disciplinary experts represents a holistic approach to the current and future challenges of cyber technology.
This means that the Cyber Technology Institute is excellently placed to work with industry and public sector partners to develop and disseminate practical solutions to key challenges of emerging technologies and to support the national strategy of developing a smart, safe, and secure cyber-space.
