Biography

 

Research Interests

Implications for the use of information security management standards by organizations

• The Compliance of Knowledge Management

• The Management of Security Knowledge

• Behavioral issues in IS security

• IS governance and security

These domains are completely intertwined with the research activities of the Financial Services and Innovation Centre. Therefore my PhD research has enabled me to make a significant contribution to the research activities of the centre. Additionally due to the number of calls for ISS research from leading journals and conferences the demand for qualitative research is steadily growing.

My research interests are also vital to my development as a lecturer, my masters was focused in educational technologies and it directly benefits my teaching as different approaches can, when properly appraised, aid learning. I have incorporated my research into Web-based training systems into my courses and have successfully increased the effectiveness of the lectures. My research into security and knowledge management has also added to the technical subjects that I teach providing my classes with ‘real life' examples from the cases that I have investigated. Meeting lecturers from other universities at national and international conferences is also an important source of teaching ideas and suggestions on problems that I may have encountered or vice versa. Overall my efforts at improvement have had a positive effect on the classes that I teach
