Projects per year
Dr Kieran McLaughlin is a Senior Lecturer at the Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT), where he leads research in cyber security for operational technologies (OT). This includes smart grids, industrial control systems (ICS), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), cyber-physical systems, and related critical infrastructure networks. His research interests include threat analysis, intrusion detection and prevention, intrusion response, cyber-physical resilience measures, and security of network protocols such as IEC61850 and IEC60870.
His research activities include a number of significant international projects, including EPSRC CAPRICA (Converged Approach towards Resilient Industrial control systems and Cyber Assurance), EPSRC ADAMA ( Analysing and Detecting Advanced Multi-stage Attacks against ICS) EU FP7 PRECYSE (Prevention, protection and reaction to cyber attacks to critical infrastructures) and EU FP7 SPARKS (Smart Grid Protection Against Cyber Attacks). He is a member of the UK's Research Institute in Trustworthy Inter-connected Cyber-physical Systems RITICS.
