Cyber Security Researchers of Waikato (CROW)
Head of Lab: Dr Ryan Ko
The Cyber Security Researchers of Waikato (CROW) aim to return control of data to data owners, by focusing on research addressing data security from a user-centric perspective. With the emergence of cloud computing technologies and prevalent mobile device usage, we are witnessing the diminishing effectiveness of traditional cyber security approaches such as perimeter defence, intrusion detection and infrastructure hardening. To address this, CROW focuses on six major themes: Provenance, User-Centricity, Visualisation, Economics, Hardware, and Tools & Datasets. Together, these six themes empower data owners, thereby reducing reliance on third-party vendors or trust relationships commonly found in most cyber security contracts today.
CROW is based within the Department of Computer Science in the Faculty of Computing and Mathematical Sciences.
