The CSI Centre aims to advance technical cyber security and digital forensics mechanisms and practice, and improve and incorporate an evidence-based approach into the frontline policing of digital forensics and cybercrime investigations.

We act as a collaborative hub for high-quality research, with a collegial, supportive and cooperative research-intensive group, aimed at high-impact outputs. The 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 cyber security, digital forensics, data science and analytics, and criminology.
