Sadie Creese joined Oxford University as Professor of Cybersecurity on October 1st 2011 based in the Department of Computer Science. Prior to joining Oxford Sadie was Professor of and Director of e-Security in the International Digital Laboratory at the University of Warwick. Creese has authored numerous papers on aspects of cyber security. Her research interests are diverse and range from human factors and risk perception, data privacy and dynamic consent models, usability of security technology, through risk management, threat and vulnerability modelling, visual analytics, situational awareness and information provenance, to the more technical aspects of intrusion detection, security architectures and network defence. Since joining academia in 2007 Sadie has taken leadership roles in excess of £2.5M worth of funded research, with sponsors coming from Industry, Government, EPSRC, ESRC and the European Commission.
Prior to her time at Warwick Creese worked for QinetiQ, where she most recently served as Director of Strategic Programmes for QinetiQ’s Trusted Information Management Division. Whilst at QinetiQ Creese was responsible for establishing and directing the UK DTI/TSB Cyber Security Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN). She also led large multi- disciplinary research programmes for a variety of customers, in areas such as pervasive networks, protection against digital infection and various safety-critical projects, and including the DTI FORWARD collaboration. Creese is a member of the Strategic Advisory Group for the RCUK Global Uncertainties programme, the Cloud Security Alliance UK and Ireland Chapter Executive Board and the ISSA UK Chapter Advisory Board.
Creese supervises Adrian Duncan who is studying the detection of insider threats in cloud computing environments, and continues to supervise PhD students at the University of Warwick:
- I. Agrafiotis – Submission expected Spring/Summer 2012, provisional thesis title ‘Enabling Revocation of Personal Data Online’.
- S.S. Rahman – Submission expected Winter 2012/2013, provisional thesis title ‘Information Provenance Decision Support’. Rahman is a CASE student supported by Thales Research UK.
- J. Jackson – Submission expected Autumn 2013, provisional thesis title ‘Biodiversity as a security strategy’.
