Cluster Leader: Dr Alison Wakefield

The Risk, Counter-Fraud and Cyber Resilience theme brings together a diverse body of researchers, students and practitioners sharing research interests in societal and organisational risk, the delivery of security from both public and private sector perspectives, and the distinct challenge of fraud and its effective control. Coming from a variety of disciplinary and career backgrounds, we are interdisciplinary in our outlook and committed to the development of applied research that can inform policy and practice.
