The School of Arts, Media and Computer Games (AMG) conducts research, knowledge exchange and consultancy services in two distinct areas: digital content creation and computer security. AMG’s Division of Games and Arts focuses on design, development and production of digital content, particularly relating to games and interactive media. The Division works with a broad range of industries and organisations seeking to develop new processes and products, media strategies and ways in which interactive media can be used to engage audiences, develop new business models and innovate new technologies. The Division of Computing and Mathematics concentrates on computer security in the fields of resilience, counter-measures and cyber security. This includes assessing business systems for resilience, penetration testing, developing and implementing secure systems. The Division offers advice and services to companies and organisations seeking to understand security risks and security management and develop software systems and countermeasures to improve secure systems operations.
