A collaborative hub for research and development related to cybercrime, digital security, forensics and safety.
The CSI Centre aims to improve and incorporate an evidence-based approach into the frontline policing of digital forensics and cybercrime investigations, and to advance human factors of computer security, and forensics mechanisms and practice.
The Centre acts as a collaborative hub for high quality research, with a collegial, supportive and cooperative research-intensive group, aimed at high-impact outputs. The CSI Centre has a close working relationship with West Yorkshire Police; working directly with the Digital Forensics Unit (DFU) and Cyber Crime Team (CCT) to investigate and improve the way cybercrime and digital evidence is processed. Our diverse and complementary academic team includes those that specialise in computer security, digital forensics, privacy and surveillance, artificial intelligence and analytics, and criminology.
We have a portfolio of research projects (leading £1.5million in recent research funding), and benefit from great links with many partnering organisations and associates. We also host a series of related talks and events, open to the community. You can also find out more about working with us.
