Information Security Research Group
Information Security Research Group
  • Coordinator: Prof. Sanjeev Sofat
  • Co Coordinator: Prof. Divya
  • Members: Prof. Ajay Mittal, Prof. Manavjeet Kaur, Prof. Arvind Kakria

The Information Security Research Group will create an environment for educational and research-related activities in information security. The results of the research will have the form of new knowledge published in prestigious journals and at international conferences, techniques applicable in computer engineering and demonstration of applications in the areas of information technology that contribute to solving the current security issues of our society. The main activity of the group will be on the following key activities but not limited to these activities:

  • Completion of PhDs of the existing members of research groups and enrolled research scholars
  • Carry out sponsored research projects
  • Publish in prestigious journals and at reputed international conferences
  • Create state of the art facilities in the area of Information Security
  • Conduct outreach activities for sensitizing society and other stakeholders in the area of Information Security
  • Collaborate with Industry, Government, Academia and other International Forums to foster research in the area.
  • Improving the quality of the ME-CSE (Information Security) Programme
