BIOGRAPHY

Research Interests

The increasing number of IS security (ISS) incidents that organizations have confronted within the last few years suggests that much needs to be done to secure information and knowledge. Most of the research on IS security to date has been at the technical level, carried out by computer scientists and computer engineers. Comparatively little work has taken a managerial point of view, covering broad organizational and social issues. The focus of my research is the exploration of the relationship between Information Security and Knowledge Management and to deepen understanding of Information Security through qualitative research. It is from this investigation that a number of issues regarding ISS have emerged:

Implications for the use of information security management standards by organizations
• The Compliance of Knowledge Management
• The Management of Security Knowledge
• Behavioral issues in IS security
• IS governance and security

These domains are completely intertwined with the research activities of the Financial Services and Innovation Centre. Therefore my PhD research has enabled me to make a significant contribution to the research activities of the centre. Additionally due to the number of calls for ISS research from leading journals and conferences the demand for qualitative research is steadily growing.

My research interests are also vital to my development as a lecturer, my masters was focused in educational technologies and it directly benefits my teaching as different approaches can, when properly appraised, aid learning. I have incorporated my research into Web-based training systems into my courses and have successfully increased the effectiveness of the lectures. My research into security and knowledge management has also added to the technical subjects that I teach providing my classes with ‘real life' examples from the cases that I have investigated. Meeting lecturers from other universities at national and international conferences is also an important source of teaching ideas and suggestions on problems that I may have encountered or vice versa. Overall my efforts at improvement have had a positive effect on the classes that I teach
