Where technology & law meet: Open Access research on data security & its regulation ...

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs exploring both the technical aspects of computer security, but also the regulation of existing or emerging technologies. A research specialism of the Department of Computer & Information Sciences (CIS) is computer security. Researchers explore issues surrounding web intrusion detection techniques, malware characteristics, textual steganography and trusted systems. Digital forensics and cyber crime are also a focus.

Meanwhile, the School of Law and its Centre for Internet Law & Policy undertake studies on Internet governance. An important component of this work is consideration of privacy and data protection questions and the increasing focus on cybercrime and 'cyberterrorism'.

This thesis reports on an investigation into individuals‟ experiences of, and responses to, the academic probationary period in UK higher education. The theoretical lens of critical realism is applied to reports of probationary experiences in relation to perceptions of cultures and structures, and the potential for agency, articulated by probationary academics. These perceptions were gathered through a series of in-depth narrative interviews with 23 academics across a year of their probationary period, analysed thematically.
