Dr. Rose Shumba
My main area of research is digital forensics, with a special focus on cloud forensics; the development of frameworks for cloud forensics investigations. There are rising threats from cyber warfare including threats to military and federal government networks. Virtualization and cloud services are also adding complexity and a new attack surface to operational networks. For effective protection of our systems, there is need for the midshipmen to have cyber skills that help attribute actions in the cyber space to an actual individual, group or state actor and be able to hold them accountable.
My other areas of research include IoT forensics, mobile forensics, Cyber Security education, usability and security, and Gender and IT/Cyber Security,.
