Dr Barney Craggs‘ research looks to how cyber security risks might be identified and mitigated through the use of human factors & ergonomics knowledge and methodology from other, mature, safety-aware industries. Together, these practices form the basis for security ergonomics – a set of design principles for building safe and secure cyber physical systems. Within this field his current research space looks to security cultures and the impact these have upon organisations, people and practice.
Alongside his own research interests, Barney is also:
- Researcher for the Bristol Cyber Security Group’s portfolio of cyber physical projects. In this he has responsibility for the design and build of our class-leading infrastructures testbed used for studying the cyber security of critical national infrastructure.
