Ethics, Privacy and Security

We investigate the issues arising from protecting people's privacy and security in an online environment, including the principles and practice of data protection law and innovative approaches to understanding cybercrime and supporting cybersecurity. We are exploring fair and trustworthy means of data sharing, ethical questions relating to the development and deployment of autonomous weapons systems, understanding algorithmic bias and accountability and the broader ethical and epistemological questions of digital data, algorithmic decision making and artificial intelligence.

Cyber Security

Cyber Crime and Cyber Security are key global challenges that require interdisciplinary expertise.  


iClic and the Web Science Centre for Doctoral Training host a day of presentations and discussions about the new General Data Protection Regulation.
