University secures funding to address stress in Cybersecurity

A team at the University of Wolverhampton is creating innovative new technology to help Cyber Security professionals reduce stress and improve performance.

The team went through a rigorous selection process and have been selected for the Cyber Security Academic Start-ups Accelerator Programme aimed at supporting the commercialisation of cyber security research. The Accelerator Programme is funded by DCMS (the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport) and delivered in partnership with Innovate UK and Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN).

Led by Visiting Scholar, Ellen Kay, and Professor Prashant Pillai of Wolverhampton Cyber Research Institute (WCRI), based at the University, the team has been awarded £31,000 to develop a market proposition and carry out market validation of their technology. The team also consists of Prof Maria Uther, Professor of Psychology and Head of Centre for Psychological Research and Dr Sadiq Ali, Lecturer at the School of Mathematics and Computer Science and Member for WCRI.

The project, ‘CyberMIND: An AI based platform to help Cyber Security professionals manage, predict and reduce stress’, is due to run until the end of July.
