The IEEE SMC (Systems, Man, and Cybernetics) Society TCSC (Technical Committee on Homeland Security) announced its 2022 awards at the 2022 IEEE International Conference on Cyber Security and Resilience (IEEE CSR 2022) on 28th July 2022. Three cyber security researchers received the 2022 IEEE SMC TCHS Research and Innovation Award, including Professor Paul Haskell-Dowland (Edith Cowan University, Australia), Professor Kim-Kwang Raymond Choo (University of Texas at San Antonio, USA), and the iCSS Director Professor Shujun Li. Each of the awardees also gave a keynote speech at the IEEE CSR 2022 conference, with Professor Li’s talk on “Privacy through the Lens of Data Flows” (work of the EPSRC funded research project PriVELT Prof Li is leading) taking place on 29th July.
Professor Shujun Li said: ‘It was my great honour to receive one of the three 2022 IEEE SMC Society TCHS Research and Innovation Awards at IEEE CSR 2022. Thank you to the IEEE SMC TCHS Award Committee for selecting me. This came as a (pleasant) surprise as more researchers have done greater work on homeland security than I have. I therefore take this as a recognition of how cyber security and homeland security are more and more connected, like what we are doing at iCSS, for example, my colleagues Dr Harmonie Toros and Dr Gareth Mott from our School of Politics and International Relations have been doing interesting research connecting the two research areas.’
