Shiri Krebs awarded funding from the Cyber Security Cooperative Research Centre

A/Prof Shiri Krebs (Deakin Law School, ADI, CSRI) was awarded a $495,000 grant from the Cyber Security Cooperative Research Centre (CSCRC), for a 3-year postdoctoral fellowship position, including research funding.

Together with Prof Lyria Bennett Moses (Director of the Allens Hub for Technology, Law and Innovation at UNSW Sydney), Associate Professor Krebs co-leads the CSCRC Law and Policy Theme, which aims to drive legal and policy adaptation to new and emerging cyber threats. Through engagement with government and industry stakeholders, as well as researchers in law and other disciplines, they develop projects focused on the role of individuals and organisations in the Cyber Security Strategy, the role of law in the information ecosystem, and the need for responsible research and innovation across the research sector.

The postdoctoral fellow will be working with A/Prof Krebs on developing and advancing these critical projects, enhancing collaboration between academia, government and industry, and contributing to solving real-world problems in this space. Through close collaboration with UNSW Sydney, as well as with CSCRC partner organisations, this grant furthers Deakin’s research leadership in this area, and its contributions to the Commonwealth goals, joining the CSCRC’s Development of Next Generation Authentication Technologies Theme, which is also led by Deakin’s scholars.
