I am the Undergraduate Course Leader for the Cyber Security and Digital Forensics degree course; and the principle Cyber Security subject champion within the School of Computer Science and Mathematics. As part of a dedicated cyber security team at Kingston University, I am also a core teaching academic on the provisionally NCSC accredited Network and Information Security MSc degree course.
