Cyber Security Laboratories
You will use specialist forensic and security laboratories within our dedicated Cyber Security Centre, and benefit from customised PCs configured with multiple operating systems, virtualisation and removable hard drives; as well as specialised servers, wired and wireless networking equipment and a wide variety of other hardware and software components. Standard investigative software is used to support the forensic analysis of digital devices.
Cyber Security Centre
The laboratories are the base for our Cyber Security Centre (CSC), a multidisciplinary group of academics and industry experts who focus on a wide variety of cyber security and digital forensics issues. Their mission is to provide the full benefits to all of a safe, secure and resilient cyberspace.
The laboratories play a vital role in the group's research and development work. Whether you are a first year undergraduate or a PhD student, within the laboratories you will be working with the latest tools and techniques at the forefront of computer forensics and security research.
This is DMU’s social hub, housing a large food court, shops, the Lobby bar, De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU), performance studios and our chaplaincy.
There are also Conference Rooms, allowing us to host a variety of events from workshops, lectures, practical sessions and group work to exhibitions.
In March 2016 work started in the centre to create a state-of-the-art new home for DSU, making it more visible, offering more breakout space and giving better access to its key services.
