Our Research Areas

Information Governance and Security

The big data generated by digital interactions between people, organisations, and artefacts is transforming the way that we live, work and think—posing numerous challenges to information governance and regulation, including of the Internet itself. We are exploring and analysing these challenges, working out how they may be overcome through new governance rules, processes, and institutions.
