SMART affiliated with Centre for Cybercrime and Computer Security @ NCL
We’re pleased to announce that the SMART project (Student-Managed Access to Online Resources) has been officially affiliated with the Centre for Cybecrime and Computer Security at Newcastle University! The CCCS carries out research and provides education to make the Internet safer for families, business and organisations. We believe that our project fits well into the overall goal of the CCCS research hub.
“Social network sites such as Facebook and many others need to be made safer to use. UMA puts users in control of their own sensitive data, allowing them to protect personal information and data from misuse by others. The user-centric vision behind UMA is particularly interesting and our Centre is very pleased to support this research further.”
Phil Butler, Detective Chief Inspector, Director of CCCS
Being a part of CCCS will be interesting but challenging as well. It means we’ll have easier access to the knowledge of great researchers here at NCL but it also means we’ll have to work hard to keep the level of research adequate. Anyway, it’s really good news!
