Research themes

Five interrelated research themes form the basis of our research program and are collectively critical to achieve Information Resilience.

Integrated research design

Although Information Resilience is usually considered in the context of risk assessment, incident management and interoperability, we have taken a broader and more integrated approach to the research design that ensures CIRES staff and students will be trained to tackle risks and failures in an end-to-end coverage of the information pipeline from data creation/acquisition to data consumption.

Accordingly, we have designed a research program that does not silo the research activity into specific areas and instead allows individual projects to capitalize on the diversity of the research team across technology, business and social dimensions and assist our industry and government partners to achieve authentic transformational outcomes. The CIRES projects will involve multi-disciplinary supervisory teams and cross-theme synergies.
