Prof. Simon Shiu contributes to:
Prof. Shiu leads research at Hewlett-Packard Labs in security analytics. Security analytics aims at providing rigorous techniques and a science-based methodology for investment decision-making in information security. The work itself is often multi-disciplinary in nature, combining economics, human factors and technology. The work is represented well within EPSRC, TSB and EU FP7 and FP8, through the involvement of Prof. Shiu and his colleagues at HP.
Prof. Shiu, from Hewlett-Packard in Bristol, leads collaborations with researcher from the School of Computing Science in the area of information security, in particular the Trust Economics TSB-sponsored project. He is also instrumental in a setting up MSc projects that target Newcastle and other MSc student in educating them in security analytics and preparing them for a job in the consulting division of HP. He has his roots in the North-East, with a PhD in Computer Science from Durham University.
Prof. Simon Shiu’s experience includes managing the Security Analytics project, which is a large inter-disciplinary research project which explores how to put more science and rigor into security investment and policy decision making. Between 2003-2007 he was a Research Manager at HP Labs Bristol and managed a series of security projects including: Assurance Management, where he helped develop a model based technology to automate the audit and assurance processes, and the Security for Utility Computing project, where he was responsible for the security research associated with HP's Adaptive Enterprise research program.
In 1996, Prof. Simon Shiu received his PhD in Computer Science from Durham University and in 1989 attained a 1st Class Honours Degree in Mathematics, Sheffield University.
