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'.

In order to understand how the Right Care Atlas series is being used within PCT clusters and CCGs to inform planning activities, and identify levers and barriers to use, Right Care has been working with Professor Gwyn Bevan’s team at the London School of Economics. The LSE has been commissioned to conduct a survey of PCTs and we hope that the results of this research will be published in an academic journal in due course. A report has been provided to the National Director of QIPP, Jim Easton. This work will inform further Atlas production and promotion of their use by PCTs and CCGs. The work has been conducted by Laura Schang and supervised by Dr Alec Morton. The research approach included telephone interviews with a sample of PCT managers and in-depth case studies of PCTs use of the Atlases. This Right Care Casebook brings together the Case Studies and is available as a downloadable PDF on the Right Care website: http://www.rightcare.nhs.uk/atlas
